Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in Heaven.@Matthew 5:16

Try to carry sunshine
Everywhere you go;
Try to brighten, some way,
Lives of those you know.
If the day be dreary,
And the way seem long,
Try to make it brighter
By a bit of song.

Refrain

Try to carry sunshine
Everywhere you go;
Try to brighten, some way,
Lives of those you know;
Try to carry sunshine
Everywhere you go.

Try to be a sunbeam
Shining for the Lord,
Living in His presence,
Feeding on His word.
Storms may overtake you,
Fearful in their might;
Trust to Jesus’ guiding,
For with Him ’tis light.

Refrain

If you walk with Jesus,
Joyfully each day,
Trying to tell others
Of the blessèd way,
Never fear temptation,
He’ll not let you fall;
Christ, the Lord, is near you
When on Him you call.

Refrain

If your life is gladsome,
Full of joy and love,
It will point to Jesus,
And the life above.
If you are but faithful
Thro’ life’s little day,
You may show to others
God’s appointed way.

Refrain
