Earth Has Its Sunshine And Shadow


Earth has its sunshine and shadow,
Its friendship, its sorrow, its thrall,
But sweet is the message from heaven,-
Jesus is joy over all.

Refrain:
Jesus is joy over all,
Jesus is joy over all;
He is a friend that will love to the end,
For Jesus is joy over all.

Burdens, so light in the morning,
Grow heavy as night-shadows fall;
There’s One who can always relieve us,-
Jesus is joy over all. [Refrain]

Springtime must fade into summer,
And summer must fade into fall,
But he has brought springtime forever,-
Jesus is joy over all. [Refrain]

Some day he’ll summon my spirit,
All weary, but waiting the call,
And then with the angels I’ll sing it,-
Jesus is joy over all. [Refrain]
