Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Happily

1. Jesus wants me for a sunbeam,

To shine for him each day;

In ev’ry way try to please him,

At home, at school, at play.

[Chorus]

A sunbeam, a sunbeam,

Jesus wants me for a sunbeam.

A sunbeam, a sunbeam,

I’ll be a sunbeam for him.

2. Jesus wants me to be loving

And kind to all I see,

Showing how pleasant and happy

His little one can be.

[Chorus]

A sunbeam, a sunbeam,

Jesus wants me for a sunbeam.

A sunbeam, a sunbeam,

I’ll be a sunbeam for him.
