1 Oft we speak about the shadows which beset us
As we travel onward on our homeward way;
But the shades, however dark, will never fret us
If this truth we will remember every day.

Refrain:
There can be no shadow where the sun’s not shining,
It’s the sunlight forms the shadows, as we know;
Face the sun, and you will cease your sad repining,
As your path will be illumined by its glow.

2 On our path the sun of righteousness is shining;
We’ll see shadows if our backs are turned to Him;
Turn about, and instantly you will be finding
That before you lies not e’en the shadow’s rim. [Refrain]

3 So, if e’er you feel your spirit has grown weary,
You may know your back is turned unto the light;
Turn to Jesus and your heart will not be dreary,
He will flood it with His sunshine warm and bright. [Refrain]

4 Let us open wide our darkened hearts to Jesus,
He who said that of this world He is the light;
From the shadows of this life He’ll surely free us,
And will cheer us even in the darkest night. [Refrain]
