No. 81: Song of Sunshine

Verse 1:
Be content with what you have,
Live at best is shaded;
Seek the sunshine while it lasts,
Ere its light is faded.

Refrain:
Be content, be content,
Skies will brighten o’er you,
Be content with what you have,
Better days before you.

Verse 2:
Do not think your lot is hard,
Cheerless like December,
Someone’s lot is harder yet,
Always that remember.

Verse 3:
Try to do some act of love,
Try some heart to gladden;
While that heart you’re binding up,
Yours will never sadden.

Verse 4:
Nothing like a cheerful heart
Frightens care and sorrow;
Nothing like a beaming face
Can the sunlight borrow.

E.B. Smith
