One of songs that I sang to the girls when they were little, this hymn always brought a peaceful response from the girls when they were tired and crying. It always brings me joy. May your soul find its sunshine in Jesus.
Sunshine In My Soul
Lyrics: Eliza E. Hewitt
Music: John R. Sweney (1887)
There is sunshine in my soul today,
More glorious and bright
Than glows in any earthly sky,
For Jesus is my Light.
O there’s sunshine, blessed sunshine,
When the peaceful, 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 my King,
And Jesus, listening, can hear
The songs I cannot sing.
There is springtime in my soul today,
For, when the Lord is near,
The dove of peace sings in my heart,
The flowers of grace appear.
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.
