Representative Text

1 When the days are gloomy, sing a song of cheer,
Sing of sunlit hills and skies of blue,
Sing till sad eyes lifted
See the clouds are rifted,
Light shines through.

Sing to all the world a song of hope and cheer,
Shed your blessings all along the way,
Make the sad hearts lighter,
Make the old earth brighter,
Day by day.

2 Sing of sheltered places when the storm winds blow,
Sing of courage in the time of fear,
Tell to souls despairing,
O’er the rough road faring,
God is near. [Refrain]

3 Far your song will echo ere the day is done
On from heart to heart its message bear,
Healing grief and sadness,
Bringing joy and gladness,
Ev’rywhere. [Refrain]
