This world is not a place for gloom,
While sunshine lights the morning sky,
While blossoms store their sweet perfume,
For everyone who passes by.
This world is not a place for wrong,
While God's dear hand is over all;
Go meet your sorrow with a song,
And nothing evil shall befall.
This world is not a place for tears
While Jesus comforts those who weep;
Let hope and joy replace your fears-
His watchful care your ways will keep.
This world is not a place for sin,
For shame, or sorrow, or despair,
While Jesus' blood can make us clean,
While He will all our burdens bear.
Then let not grief your heart beguile,
Meet every trouble with a smile;
Are any sad, go make them glad,
And live in sunshine all the while.
