Representative Text

1 There’s sunshine in my Savior’s love,
I feel it more each day,
And brighter than the sun above,
It makes my homeward way.

Bright, beautiful sunshine,
Warm from the heart above;
Beautiful sunshine, sunshine,
Sunshine of Jesus’ love.

2 It shines upon me and within,
And keeps me pure and sweet.
It shows to me the snares of sin,
And guides my wayward feet. [Refrain]

3 It drives the shadows from my soul
And keeps my burden light,
And when the tempter would control
It gives me strength to fight. [Refrain]

4 It cheers my spirit on and on
Towards the resting place,
And thus ‘twill cheer till life is done
And I behold his face. [Refrain]
