    Scatter Sunshine

    Cheerfully

    1. In a world where sorrow

    Ever will be known,

    Where are found the needy

    And the sad and lone,

    How much joy and comfort

    You can all bestow,

    If you scatter sunshine

    Ev’rywhere you go.

    [Chorus]

    Scatter sunshine all along your way.

    Cheer and bless and brighten

    Ev’ry passing day.

    Scatter sunshine all along your way.

    Cheer and bless and brighten

    Ev’ry passing day.

    2. Slightest actions often

    Meet the sorest needs,

    For the world wants daily

    Little kindly deeds.

    Oh, what care and sorrow

    You may help remove,

    With your songs and courage,

    Sympathy and love.

    [Chorus]

    Scatter sunshine all along your way.

    Cheer and bless and brighten

    Ev’ry passing day.

    Scatter sunshine all along your way.

    Cheer and bless and brighten

    Ev’ry passing day.

    3. When the days are gloomy,

    Sing some happy song;

    Meet the world’s repining

    With a courage strong.

    Go with faith undaunted

    Thru the ills of life;

    Scatter smiles and sunshine

    O’er its toil and strife.

    [Chorus]

    Scatter sunshine all along your way.

    Cheer and bless and brighten

    Ev’ry passing day.

    Scatter sunshine all along your way.

    Cheer and bless and brighten

    Ev’ry passing day.
