Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.@Matthew 5:16

I. Mench Chambers, in Uplifted Voices (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Geibel & Lehman, 1901), number 151.

Thomas O’Neill (🔊 pdf nwc).

A little bit of sunshine,
A little word or two,
Just falling as the moments
Suggest the way to you;
Ah! these will change the features
Of all the world’s sad face,
And give some soul the courage
To stand within its place.

Refrain

Sunshine; sunshine,
A little bit of sunshine;
Sunshine; sunshine,
From out a heart of love.
Sunshine; sunshine,
A little bit of sunshine;
Sunshine; sunshine,
From out a heart of love.

A little bit of sunshine,
Enough to throw a smile
Upon some downcast spirit,
His sorrows to beguile;
Ah! this is what is needed
More often than we know,
By those whose hearts are aching
Along their paths below.

Refrain

These little bits of sunshine
Caught from the skies above,
Just falling with the moments,
From out a heart of love;
Such service truly given
To each will surely bring,
Its blessing here, and yonder,
From Christ our Lord and king.

Refrain
