Looking on the bright side, trusting all to Him;
Leaning on the Savior when the light is dim;
Tho’ the way be thorny and the mountain steep,
Looking on the bright side, God the soul will keep.

Refrain

Looking on the bright side all along the way,
Soon we’ll see the shadows merging into day;
Looking on the bright side, see all bane and blight,
Care and pain and sorrow, passing out of sight.

Looking on the bright side, every passing day,
We can cheer a traveler on the narrow way;
We can tell the story, tell of Him our guide,
Who was for a world of sinners crucified.

Refrain

Looking on the bright side, tho’ the shadows fall,
God, within the shadow watcheth over all;
He is near His children, shields from every foe,
Gives them peace and comfort in this world below.

Refrain
