1 Welcome, sweet sunshine, thy bright reign begin;
Beautiful sunshine, come in, oh, come in.

Refrain:
Beautiful sunshine, come in, oh, come in;
Beautiful sunshine, come in, oh, come in.

2 Cold and unloving, too long have we been;
Beautiful sunshine, come in, oh, come in. [Refrain]

3 Drive out the darkness, the sorrow and sin;
Beautiful sunshine, come in, oh, come in. [Refrain]

4 Heavenward, homeward, the wandering win;
Beautiful sunshine,come in, oh, come in. [Refrain]
