1 All our life is joyous, all the way is bright,
For the Saviour’s presence banishes the night;
Sin has no abiding, sorrow takes its flight,
When we live a life of sunshine.

Refrain:
Gladness and joy fill all my soul,
When I hear the Master say:
"My peace I give,"
That makes it sunshine all the way.

2 Stormy clouds may gather, wild the tempest blow,
But within, my soul with light is all aglow;
Happiness and peace thro’ ev’ry heart will flow,
If we live a life of sunshine. [Refrain]

3 When the sunshine enters, darkness flees away;
Doubts and fears are scattered by its cheering ray;
All along, the path grows brighter ev’ry day,
When we live a life of sunshine. [Refrain]
