1. Would you always cheerful be,
Let the blessèd sunlight in;
Would you bid the darkness flee,
Let the blessèd sunlight in.

Refrain
Let the blessèd sunlight in,
Let the blessèd sunlight in!
Would you never weary,
When the days are dreary,
Let the blessèd sunlight in!

2. Would you brighten dreary days,
Let the blessèd sunlight in;
Would you fill your heart with praise,
Let the blessèd sunlight in. [Refrain]

3. Would you ease a burdened heart,
Let the blessèd sunlight in;
Would you joy and strength impart,
Let the blessèd sunlight in. [Refrain]

4. Would you speed the truth abroad,
Let the blessèd sunlight in;
Would you bring the world to God,
Let the blessèd sunlight in. [Refrain]
