1 You have known the Master, blessed Master,
You have known His mercy and His love;
You have caught the sunbeams, cheering sunbeams,
Gently falling from the skies above.

Refrain:
Scatter the sunbeams, cheering bright sunbeams;
Darkened hearts for sunlight cry;
Bear the news of mercy, tell the news of Jesus,
Let the cheering sunbeams fly.

2 You have seen the sunbeams, cheering sunbeams,
Chasing shadows from the clouded sky;
You have seen the dawning, wondrous dawning,
Coming, glorious, when the sunbeams fly. [Refrain]

3 You have seen the sunbeams, cheering sunbeams,
Following showers on the fields new sown;
You have seen the harvest, golden harvest,
Safely garnered, with the ear full grown. [Refrain]
