444. Sunlight

1 I wandered in the shades of night,
Till Jesus came to me,
And with the sunlight of His love
Bid all my darkness flee.

Refrain:
Sunlight, sunlight in my soul today,
Sunlight, sunlight all along the way;
Since the Savior found me
Took away my sin,
I have had the sunlight of his love within.

2 Tho' clouds may gather in the sky,
And billows round me roll,
However dark the world may be,
I've sunlight in my soul. [Refrain]

3 While walking in the light of God,
I sweet communion find;
O press with holy vigor on,
And leave the world behind. [Refrain]

4 I cross the wide-extended fields,
I journey o'er the plain,
And in the sunlight of His love
I reap the golden grain. [Refrain]

5 Soon I shall see Him as He is,
The light that came to me,
Behold the brightness of his face,
Thro'out eternity. [Refrain]
