Lyrics

  1. 1. You can make the pathway bright,
    Fill the soul with heaven's light,
    If there's sunshine in your heart;
    Turning darkness into day,
    As the shadows fly away,
    If there's sunshine in your heart today.
  2. (Chorus)
    If there's sunshine in your heart,
    You can send a shining ray
    That will turn the night to day;
    And your cares will all depart,
    If there's sunshine in your heart today.
  3. 2. You can speak the gentle word
    To the heart with anger stirred,
    If there's sunshine in your heart;
    Tho it seems a little thing,
    It will heaven's blessings bring,
    If there's sunshine in your heart today.
  4. 3. You can do a kindly deed
    To your neighbor in his need,
    If there's sunshine in your heart;
    And his burden you will share
    As you lift his load of care,
    If there's sunshine in your heart today.
  5. 4. You can live a happy life
    In this world of toil and strife,
    If there's sunshine in your heart;
    And your soul will glow with love
    From the perfect Light above,
    If there's sunshine in your heart today.
