          I wandered in the shades of night,
          Till Jesus came to me,
          And with the sunlight of His love,
          Bid all my darkness flee.

            Chorus
            Sunlight, sunlight, in my soul today,
            Sunlight, sunlight, all along the way;
            Since the Savior found me,
            Took away my sin,
            I have had the sunlight of His love within.

          Tho' clouds may gather in the sky,
          And billows round be roll,
          However dark the world may be,
          I've sunlight in my soul.

            Chorus
            Sunlight, sunlight, in my soul today,
            Sunlight, sunlight, all along the way;
            Since the Savior found me,
            Took away my sin,
            I have had the sunlight of His love within.

          While walking in the light of God,
          I sweet communion find;
          I press with holy vigor on,
          And leave the world behind.

            Chorus
            Sunlight, sunlight, in my soul today,
            Sunlight, sunlight, all along the way;
            Since the Savior found me,
            Took away my sin,
            I have had the sunlight of His love within.

          I cross the wide extended fields,
          I journey o'er the plain,
          And in the sunlight of His love,
          I reap the golden grain.

            Chorus
            Sunlight, sunlight, in my soul today,
            Sunlight, sunlight, all along the way;
            Since the Savior found me,
            Took away my sin,
            I have had the sunlight of His love within.

          Soon I shall see Him as He is,
          The light that came to me;
          Behold the brightness of His face,
          Thro' out eternity.

            Chorus
            Sunlight, sunlight, in my soul today,
            Sunlight, sunlight, all along the way;
            Since the Savior found me,
            Took away my sin,
            I have had the sunlight of His love within.
