The sunshine I have found
Will fill each day with joy,
And every moment sweetly bless;
The rays that gently fall
Upon my daily path
Are given by the Sun of Righteousness.

Refrain

So if the sky is dark,
And if the day is dreary,
The sun is shining somewhere,
This I know, I know;
And so to keep my heart
From ever growing weary,
I’ll carry my sunshine with me
Everywhere I go.

Look up and praise the Lord!
The flowers need the rain
That falls upon them day by day;
Just as our thirsty souls
Would seek the cooling springs
If we were walking in a desert way.

Refrain

But for the child of God,
There always is a ray
That struggles thro’ the clouds above;
That shines across his path
And keeps his wavering faith
To rest securely in a Father’s love.

Refrain

It is the light that shines,
When Jesus speaks to me
And tells me I am saved by grace;
The sunshine I have found
Is free to all who seek,
The sunshine of my blessèd Savior’s face.
