Why Should We Always Be Sighing


Why should we always be sighing,
Smiles to the victor belong,
Keep all your joy banners flying,
Brighten the day with a song.

Chorus:
Trust-and the skies will be clearer,
Hope-tho’ the journey be long;
Faith brings the harbor light nearer,
Brighten the day with a song.

Life is too short for complaining,
Tears never righten a wrong,
Look for the lift when its raining,
Brighten the day with a song. [Chorus]

List to the birds that are singing,
When winds blow steady and strong,
Bounteous gifts they are bringing,
Brighten the day with a song. [Chorus]
