1 There are shadows in the valley,
Where our tired feet must go;
But we fear the peaceful waters,
As they murmur soft and low;--
And our Shepherd whispers gently,
As He leads us onward still:
"There are shadows in the valley,
But 'tis sunshine on the hill."

Chorus:
Sunshine on the hill,
There is sunshine on the hill;
"There are shadows in the valley,
But 'tis sunshine on the hill."

2 There are shadows in the valley,
But we breathe the sweet perfume
Of the roses on the mountain,
In their lovely, vernal bloom;
And again our Shepherd whispers,
As He leads us onward still;
"There are shadows in the valley,
But 'tis sunshine on the hill." [Chorus]

3 Oh, the shadows of the valley,
Like a dream will pass away;
They will vanish at the dawning
Of the bright and glorious day;
Even now there comes an echo,
And we feel its magic thrill:
"There are shadows in the valley,
But 'tis sunshine on the hill." [Chorus]
