1 In the happy sunshine bright,
I will sing my cheerful song;
When the sun is hid from sight,
I will sing my cheerful song.
Every day along the way,
Whether lights or shadows play,
To the Savior I belong,
I will sing my cheerful song.

2 When the way is clear before,
I will sing my cheerful song;
When I see but one step more,
I will sing my cheerful song.
Watching still to do His will,
Trusting Him to keep from ill;
I am safe, for Christ is strong,
I will sing my cheerful song.

3 Jesus knows the way I take,
I will sing my cheerful song;
Jesus never will forsake,
I will sing my cheerful song.
Always near, His voice I hear,
Perfect love shall cast out fear;
Looking upward all day long,
I will sing my cheerful song.
