1. Walking in sunlight all of my journey, Over the mountains, through the deep vale; Jesus has said, I’ll never forsake thee— Promise divine that never can fail.
Refrain: Heavenly sunlight! Heavenly sunlight! Flooding my soul with glory divine; Hallelujah! I am rejoicing, Singing His praises, Jesus is mine.
2. Shadows around me, shadows above me Never conceal my Savior and Guide; He is the light, in Him is no darkness, Ever I’m walking close to His side.
3. In the bright sunlight, ever rejoicing, Pressing my way to mansions above; Singing His praises, gladly I’m walking, Walking in sunlight, sunlight of love.
