Why Walk In The Darkness And The Shadows


Why walk in the darkness and shadows of night,
When sunlight so full and so free
Is streaming around with its radiance bright
To lighten the pathway for thee?

Refrain:
Then live in the sunlight, beautiful, heavenly sunlight,
Trusting in Jesus and looking above;
Then live in the sunlight, beautiful, heavenly sunlight,
Live in the sunlight, the sunlight of love.

Why bearing thy burden of sorrow so long,
Alone and unaided, when He
Whose heart is so kind and whose arm is so string,
Thy great Burden-bearer would be? [Refrain]

The clouds shall all scatter when “God is thy light,”
No more earthly shadows shall fall;
And visions of rapture shall burst on thy sight,
“In Him is no darkness at all.” [Refrain]
