This World Is Not A Place For Gloom


This world is not a place for gloom,
While sunshine lights the morning sky,
While blossoms store their sweet perfume
For ev’ry one who passes by.

Refrain:
Then let not grief your heart beguile,
Meet ev’ry trouble with a smile;
Are any sad go make them glad,
And live in sunshine all the while.

This world is not a place for wrong
While God’s dear hand is over all;
Go meet your sorrow with a song,
And nothing evil shall befall. [Refrain]

This world is not a place for tears
While Jesus comforts those who weep;
Let hope and joy replace your fears
His watchful care your ways will keep. [Refrain]

This world is not a place for sin,
For shame, or sorrow, or despair,
While Jesus’ blood can make us clean,
While He will all our burdens bear. [Refrain]
