When The Sunshine Lights

When the sunshine lights the sky,
All the world is fair,
But when stormy clouds arise,
Gloom is ev’rywhere.

That’s the time for gladness,
That’s the time for cheer,
Help to banish sadness,
Help to conquer fear.
When the shadows gather,
Let your work begin,
Where you see the darkest cloud,
Bring the sunshine in.

Carry stored-up sunshine ’round
In your heart all day,
Where a gloomy place is found,
Give some light away. [Refrain]

Never does a shadow fall
Nor a cloud hang low,
But the light of kindly care
Sets it all aglow. [Refrain]
