865. On the Sunny Side of Life

1 There’s a sunny side where no ills betide,
On the road that we must go;
There are pleasant vales, verdant hills and dales,
Where sweet flowers ever grow.

Refrain:
Oh, the happy, sunny, verdant dales,
Where the sweetest gladness e’er prevails,
Where the sunshine lingers on the hills
Of the sunny side of life.

2 There are shady dells where no gladness dwells,
And the clouds obstruct the view;
But a brighter way, like the light of day,
Is awaiting now for you. [Refrain]

3 Let us sing a song as we go along,
Let us banish care and strife,
That the world may know as we onward go,
There’s a sunny side of life. [Refrain]
