Keep on the Sunny Side lyrics

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 ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way ...we cherish so dear The clouds and storms will, in time, pass away The sun again will shine bright and clear. Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side Keep on the sunny side of life It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way If we'll keep on the sunny side of life Let us greet with the song of hope each day Tho' the moment be cloudy or fair And let us trust in our Saviour away Who keepeth everyone in His care Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side Keep on the sunny side of life It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way If we'll keep on the sunny side of life Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side Keep on the sunny side of life It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way If we'll keep on the sunny side of life If we'll keep on the sunny side of life
