Verse 1
There’s a dark and a troubled side of life
There’s a bright and a sunny side too
Though you meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side you also may view

Chorus
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us every day it will brighten all the way
If we’ll keep on the sunny side of life

Verse 2
Though the storm and its fury rage today
Crushing hope that we cherish so dear
The cloud and storm will in time pass away
And the sun again will shine bright and clear

Chorus
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us every day it will brighten all the way
If we’ll keep on the sunny side of life

Verse 3
Let us greet with a song of hope each day
Though the moment be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Savior always
He’ll keep us every one in His care

Chorus
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us every day it will brighten all the way
If we’ll keep on the sunny side of life

Verse 1
Precious memories, unseen angels
Sent from somewhere to my soul
How they linger, ever near me
And the sacred scenes unfold

Precious memories, how they linger
How they ever flood my soul
In the stillness of the midnight
Precious, sacred scenes unfold

Verse 2
Precious father, loving mother
Fly across the lonely years
And old home scenes of my childhood
In fond memory appears

Chorus
Precious memories, how they linger
How they ever flood my soul
In the stillness of the midnight
Precious, sacred scenes unfold

Verse 3
I remember Mother praying
Father too, on bended knee
The sun is sinking, shadows falling
But their prayers still follow me

Chorus
Precious memories, how they linger
How they ever flood my soul
In the stillness of the midnight
Precious, sacred scenes unfold

It Is Well With My Soul

H. Spafford / P. Bliss

Verse 1
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul

Chorus
It is well, with my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

Verse 2
My sin—oh, the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part but the whole
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul

Chorus
It is well, with my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

Verse 3
And Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend
Even so, it is well with my soul

Chorus
It is well, with my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

Softly And Tenderly

W. Thompson

Verse 1
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling for you and for me
See, on the portals he’s waiting and watching
Watching for you and for me

Chorus
Come home, come home
Ye who are weary come home
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling
Calling, O sinner, come home

Verse 2
Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading
Pleading for you and for me
Why should we linger and heed not his mercies
Mercies for you and for me

Chorus
Come home, come home
Ye who are weary come home
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling
Calling, O sinner, come home

Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling
