1 In this world, where shadows
Dark and drear abound,
Where the tears of sorrow
Plentiful are found,
Let us prove our union
With the Christ above,
By the joy of showing
Bright sunshine of love.

Refrain:
Sunshine, sunshine,
coming from above,
Keep it beaming ever,
Bright sunshine of love.

2 Souls in darkness groping,
Seeking for the way,
Leading up to glory,
Realm of endless day;
Comfort, cheer and help them,
Doubt and fear remove,
Making plain the pathway
With sunshine of love. [Refrain]

3 Soon will end the work-time,
And the pain and strife,
Then we'll rest together
Blest with peace and life;
With our loving Saviour
Now enthroned above,
Basking then forever
In sunshine of love. [Refrain]
