When The Days Are Gloomy

When the days are gloomy, sing a song of cheer,
Sing of sunlit hills and skies of blue,
Sing till sad eyes lifted
See the clouds are rifted,
Light shines through.

Sing to all the world a song of hope and cheer,
Shed your blessings all along the way,
Make the sad hearts lighter,
Make the old earth brighter,
Day by day.

Sing of sheltered places when the storm winds blow,
Sing of courage in the time of fear,
Tell to souls despairing,
O’er the rough road faring,
God is near. [Refrain]

Far your song will echo ere the day is done
On from heart to heart its message bear,
Healing grief and sadness,
Bringing joy and gladness,
Ev’rywhere. [Refrain]
