1 Where some pathway in shadow is lying,
Bring sunshine, bring sunshine!
Send good cheer o’er complaining and sighing,
Bring sunshine, bring sunshine!
O share ev’ry blessing God sendeth,
Nor selfishly hide them away;
And the harvest you greet shall be full and complete,
As you see it in joy someday.

Refrain:
Hope and good cheer,
Bring ever near,
Filling this dark world with sunshine;
Bring joy and light,
Hope and good cheer,
Bring ever near;
Telling the love of our Father so dear,
Bringing sunshine so fair and bright.

2 To this world in its sorrow and sadness,
Bring sunshine, bring sunshine!
Sow the beautiful blossoms of gladness,
Bring sunshine, bring sunshine!
The silence will break into singing,
Dark shadows will hasten away;
O the harvest you greet shall be full and complete,
As you see it in joy someday. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis a mission, than kingship more royal,
Bring sunshine, bring sunshine!
To our Father in heaven be loyal,
Bring sunshine, bring sunshine!
His love hour by hour watches o’er you,
Then trust in His pow’r, watch and pray;
O the harvest you greet shall be full and complete,
As you see it in joy someday. [Refrain]
