All our life is joyous, all the way is bright,
For the Savior’s presence banishes the night;
Sin has no abiding, sorrow takes its flight,
When we live a life of sunshine.


Gladness and joy fill all my soul,
When I hear the Master say:
My peace I give,
That makes it sunshine all the way.

Stormy clouds may gather, wild the tempest blow,
But within, my soul with light is all aglow;
Happiness and peace thro’ every heart will flow,
If we life a life of sunshine.


When the sunshine enters, darkness flees away;
Doubts and fears are scattered by its cheering ray;
All along, the path grows brighter every day,
When we life a life of sunshine.
