Only a Beam of Sunshine

Verse 1:
Only a beam of sunshine,
But oh, it was warm and bright;
The heart of a weary trav’ler
Was cheer’d by its welcome sight.
Only a beam of sunshine
That fell from the arch above,
And tenderly, softly whisper’d
A message of peace and love.

Refrain:
Only a word for Jesus,
Only a whisper’d pray’r
Over some grief-worn spirit
May rest like a sunbeam fair.

Verse 2:
Only a beam of sunshine,
That into a dwelling crept,
Where, over a fading rosebud,
A mother her vigil kept.
Only a beam of sunshine
That smil’d thro’ her falling tears,
And show’d the bow of promise,
Forgotten perhaps for years.

Verse 3:
Only a word for Jesus!
Oh, speak it in His dear name;
To perishing souls around you
The message of love proclaim.
Go, like the faithful sunbeam,
Your mission of joy fulfil;
Remember the Saviour’s promise,
That He will be with you still.
