Keep on the Sunny Side of Life

Cat. #1123 (MFH #781) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on April 9, 1970

VERSE 1
There's a dark an' troubled side of life
There's a bright and a sunny side, too
Though we meet with th darkness of strife
Sunny side they also may view

CHORUS:
Keep on th sunny side
Always on th sunny side
Keep on th sunny side of life
It will help us ever day
It will brighten all our way
If we'll keep on th sunny side of life

VERSE 2
Th storms an' it's fery breaks th day
Crushing hope that we cherish so dear
Clouds an' storms will all pass away
Th sun again will shine, bright an' clear

VERSE 3
Lets us greet with this song of hope this day
Thought th moment be cloudy or fair
Lets us trust in our Saviour always
Who keeps us, everone in His care
