Lyrics

  1. 1. In a world where sorrow
    Ever will be known,
    Where are found the needy
    And the sad and lone,
    How much joy and comfort
    You can all bestow,
    If you scatter sunshine
    Ev'rywhere you go.
  2. (Chorus)
    Scatter sunshine all along your way.
    Cheer and bless and brighten
    Ev'ry passing day.
    Scatter sunshine all along your way.
    Cheer and bless and brighten
    Ev'ry passing day.
  3. (Chorus Alto, Tenor, and Bass.) Scatter the smiles and sunshine all along over your way.
    Cheer and bless and brighten
    Ev'ry passing, passing day.
    Scatter the smiles and sunshine all along over your way.
    Cheer and bless and brighten
    Ev'ry passing day.
  4. 2. Slightest actions often
    Meet the sorest needs,
    For the world wants daily
    Little kindly deeds.
    Oh, what care and sorrow
    You may help remove,
    With your songs and courage,
    Sympathy and love.
  5. 3. When the days are gloomy,
    Sing some happy song;
    Meet the world's repining
    With a courage strong.
    Go with faith undaunted
    Thru the ills of life;
    Scatter smiles and sunshine
    O'er its toil and strife.
