If we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.@1 John 1:7

As we take our earthly journey,
There’s a path of joy and love,
Where the Savior sheds His smile from day to day;
And the ones who fully trust Him,
Tho’ the clouds hang dark above,
Will be walking in the sunlight all the way.

Refrain

In the sunlight, in the sunlight!
If we walk in faith believing every day;
In the sunlight, in the sunlight!
We’ll be walking in the sunlight all the way.

Refrain

Oft we journey on discouraged,
Over many a weary mile,
Just because we fail to catch love’s beaming ray,
When we might have Christ the Master
Our companion all the while,
And be walking in the sunlight all the way.

Refrain

Tho’ the light of sin and folly
May the careless feet allure,
Yet their pleasures soon are spent and pass away
But the saved have joys abounding
That forevermore endure
And are walking in the sunlight all the way.

Refrain

When this life on earth is ended,
And before our raptured sight,
There shall dawn the gleam of Heav’n’s eternal day;
Thro’ that fair and holy city,
Where there comes no shade of night,
We’ll be walking in the sunlight all the way.

Refrain
