If the dark shadows gather as you go along,
Do not grieve for their coming; sing a cheery song.
There is joy for the taking; it will soon be light.
Every cloud wears a rainbow if your heart keeps right.

Refrain

If your heart keeps right, if your heart keeps right,
There’s a song of gladness in the darkest night.
If your heart keeps right, if your heart keeps right,
Every cloud will wear a rainbow, if your heart keeps right.

Is your life just a tangle full of toil and care?
Smile a bit as you journey, others’ burdens share.
You’ll forget all your troubles, making their lives bright.
Skies will grow blue and sunny, if your heart keeps right.

Refrain

There are blossoms of gladness, ’neath the winter’s snow.
From the gloom and the darkness come the morning glow.
Never give up the battle, you will win the fight;
Gain the rest of the victor, if your heart keeps right.

Refrain
