          There is sunshine in my soul today,
          More glorious and bright,
          Than glows is any earthly skies,
          For Jesus is my Light.

            Chorus
            O there's sunshine, blessed sunshine,
              (O there's sunshine in the soul, blessed sunshine in the soul)
            When the peaceful happy moments roll;
                                                            (happy moments roll)
            When Jesus shows His smiling face,
            There is sunshine in the soul.

          There is music in my soul today,
          A carol to the King,
          And Jesus, listening, can hear,
          The songs I cannot sing.

            Chorus
            O there's sunshine, blessed sunshine,
              (O there's sunshine in the soul, blessed sunshine in the soul)
            When the peaceful happy moments roll;
                                                            (happy moments roll)
            When Jesus shows His smiling face,
            There is sunshine in the soul.

          There is springtime in my soul today,
          For, when the Lord is near,
          The dove of peace sings in my heart,
          The flow'rs of grace appear.

            Chorus
            O there's sunshine, blessed sunshine,
              (O there's sunshine in the soul, blessed sunshine in the soul)
            When the peaceful happy moments roll;
                                                            (happy moments roll)
            When Jesus shows His smiling face,
            There is sunshine in the soul.

          There is gladness in my soul today,
          And hope and praise and love,
          For blessings which He gives me now,
          For joys laid up above.

            Chorus
            O there's sunshine, blessed sunshine,
              (O there's sunshine in the soul, blessed sunshine in the soul)
            When the peaceful happy moments roll;
                                                            (happy moments roll)
            When Jesus shows His smiling face,
            There is sunshine in the soul.
