The World Is Full Of Beauty


The world is full of beauty,
When the heart is fill’d with love;
And clearer skies and brighter stars
Will greet us from above.
The sun sends out its golden beams
Much brighter in its shining,
And darkest clouds that o’er us spread,
Will have a silver lining.

Chorus:
The world is full of beauty,
When the heart is fill’d with love;
And clearer skies and brighter stars
Will greet us from above.

‘Tis love that lifts the burden,
And ’tis love that lights the way;
She sings her softest, sweetest notes
By night as well as day.
When gloomy shadows deep’ning fall,
Instead of sad repining,
Looks up and sees that darksome clouds
All have a silver lining. [Chorus]

Love cheers the sadder moments
Of our pilgrimage below;
And by its wand of magic pow’r
Our pathways brighter grow.
And precious is the thought, that when
Our latest sun’s declining,
No threat’ning cloud shall then be seen,
Without its silver lining. [Chorus]
