1 Send out the sunlight, the sunlight of cheer,
Shine on earth's sadness till it disappear--
Souls are in waiting this message to hear,
Send out the sunlight of love.

Chorus:
Send out the sunlight of love,
Send out the sunlight of love;
Send out the sunlight,
Send out the sunlight,
Send out the sunlight of love.

2 Send out the sunlight in letter and word;
Speak it and think it till hearts are all stirred--
Hearts that are hungry for prayers still unheard,
Send out the sunlight of love. [Chorus]

3 Send out the sunlight each hour and day,
Crown all the years with its luminous ray,
Nourish the seeds that are sown on the way,
Send out the sunlight of love. [Chorus]

4 Send out the sunlight that speaks in a smile,
Often it shortens the long, weary mile,
Often the burdens seem light for awhile,
Send out the sunlight of love. [Chorus]

5 Send out the sunlight, as free as the air!
Blessings will follow with none to compare,
Blessings of peace that will rise from despair!
Send out the sunlight of love. [Chorus]

6 Send out the sunlight, you have it in you!
Clouds may obscure it just now from your view;
Pray for its presence! your pray'r will come true,
Send out the sunlight of love. [Chorus]
