Lyrics

Trusting Jesus, wonderful guide,
In His keeping safely abide;
Joys eternal He will impart;
Get God’s sunshine into your heart.

Refrain

Get God’s sunshine into your heart,
Get God’s sunshine into your heart,
It will cheer you all the day,
Drive the gloom of life away,
If you get God’s sunshine into your heart.

Wondrous promise He will fulfill,
Gladly doing His holy will;
Peace unending He will impart,
Get God’s sunshine into your heart.

Refrain

Friend of sinners, ever the same,
Willing Savior, praise His dear name,
Full forgiveness He will impart,
Get God’s sunshine into your heart.
