The Sun Shines Brightly

By: Woodrow Odom Lucas

The Sun Shines Brightly,

It heals the soul in times of fright,

But there is a light that shines brighter within us day and night,

It is the sound of children crying out for the comfort of their mother’s touch,

It is the kindness we show to each other,

When life just seems too much,

The sun shines brightly,

It heals the soul in times of fright,

But there is a light that shines brighter within us day and night,

It loves in times when people call us fools,

It loves when tragic sounds abound,

It loves until we can hear the sound,

O Jesus saying, “It will be alright.”

For I am with you always,

The sun shines brightly,

It heals the soul in times of fright,

But there is a light that shines brighter,

The light of God in one and all,

The light of God to catch us when we fall,

Of bliss and endless beauty,

So when fright has you gripped in the spider’s web,

The sun may help that’s true,

But there is a  light who always burns,

A light that will comfort you,

Sometimes this life can get quite hard,

But I promise it has a happy ending,

For a light within me tells me so,

A light that’s always sending,

His love to one and all to feel,

And tremble at his sight,

A light to heal the broken heart,

And wonder at his might,

The sun shines brightly,

It heals the soul in times of fright,

But God will love you no matter what,

Within, without, wrong  or right,

For God made you a special sort,

To Glorify his name,

And God knows how to free the hurting soul from guilt and shame,

So when you feel that pain that comes,

Just know it too shall pass,

For God will love you always, day and night and everlast.
