Representative Text

1 When the day is dreary, and your heart is sad,
Let the heav’nly sunlight in;
Look to Christ your Savior, He will make you glad;
Let the heav’nly sunlight in.

Refrain:
Let the heav’nly sunlight in,
Let the heav’nly sunlight in;
Be a living light for Jesus day and night,
Let the heav’nly sunlight in.

2 When your doubts distress you and your fears arise,
Let the heav’nly sunlight in;
It will drive the storm-clouds quickly from your skies;
Let the heav’nly sunlight in. [Refrain]

3 When the conflict rages and you almost fail,
Let the heav’nly sunlight in;
Ne’er give o’er the battle, you shall yet prevail;
Let the heav’nly sunlight in. [Refrain]

4 When your day is waning and your work is done,
Let the heav’nly sunlight in;
It will guide you safely home to Christ the Son;
Let the heav’nly sunlight in. [Refrain]
