Keep on the Sunnyside

(Blenkhorn & Entwisle)

G C G
There's a dark and a troubled side of life
D7
There's a bright and a sunnyside, too
G
'though we meet with the darkness and strife
C D7 G
The sunnyside we also may view.

(Chorus)
G
Keep on the sunnyside
C G
Always on the sunnyside
D7
Keep on the sunnyside of life
G
It will help us everyday
C G
It will brighten all our way
G C G D7 G
If we keep on the sunnyside of life.

The storm in its fury broke today
Crashing hopes we'd cherished so dear
Clouds and storm will in time pass away
And the sun again will shine bright and clear.

Let us greet with a song of hope each day
'though the moment be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Saviour always
To keep us everyone in His care.
