Keep on the Sunny Side of Life

by Ada Blenkhorn & J. Howard Entwisle (©1899)


There's a dark and a troubled side of life;

There's a bright and a sunny side, too;

Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife,

The sunny side we also may view.


Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,

Keep on the sunny side of life;

It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way,

If we keep on the sunny side of life.


Tho' the storm in its fury breakes today;

Crushing hopes that we cherished so dear;

Storm and cloud will in time pass away,

The sun again will shine bright and clear.


Let us greet with a song of hope each day,

Tho' the moments be cloudy or fair;

Let us trust in our Saviour alway,

Who keepeth every one in His care.
