648. There Is Sunlight on the Hilltop

1 There is sunlight on the hilltop,
There is sunlight on the sea;
And the golden beams are sleeping
On the soft and verdant lea;
But a richer light is filling
All the chambers of my heart;
For Thou dwellest there, my Savior
And ’tis sunlight where Thou art.

Refrain:
Oh, the sunlight! beautiful sunlight!
Oh, the sunlight in the heart!
Jesus’ smile can banish sadness;
It is sunlight in the heart.

2 In the dust I leave my sadness,
As the garb of other days,
For Thou robest me with gladness,
And Thou fillest me with praise;
And to that bright home of glory
Which Thy love hath won for me,
In my heart and mind ascending,
My glad spirit follows Thee. [Refrain]

3 Loving Savior, Thou hast bought me,
And my life, my all, is Thine;
Let the lamp Thy love hath lighted
To Thy praise and glory shine;
And to that bright home of glory
Which Thy love hath won for me,
In my heart and mind ascending,
My glad spirit follows Thee. [Refrain]
