Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.@Matthew 13:43

J. W. Carpenter, 1904.

James A. Burchit (🔊 pdf nwc).

You have known the Master, blessèd Master,
You have known His mercy and His love;
You have caught the sunbeams, cheering sunbeams,
Gently falling from the skies above. (so gently)


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.

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. (bright sunbeams)


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. (blest harvest)
