Sunshine in My Soul



For the first time in weeks we actually have some sun today!!  Despite the gloom from the past few weeks and the attitude problems I have encountered this morning (yes, we too, have to get a grip on our attitudes in this house), this hymn of testimony has been in my head all morning.  The sun is indeed shining and THE SON shines even brighter!

Sunshine in My Soul by Eliza E. Hewitt, 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 my soul.

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


O there's sunshine, blessed sunshine,
When the peaceful, happy moments roll;
When Jesus shows his smiling face,
There is sunshine in my soul. 


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


O there's sunshine, blessed sunshine,
When the peaceful, happy moments roll;
When Jesus shows his smiling face,
There is sunshine in my 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.




O there's sunshine, blessed sunshine,
When the peaceful, happy moments roll;
When Jesus shows his smiling face,
There is sunshine in my soul.
