LET THE SUNSHINE IN
Words by Ada Blenkhorn, music by Charles H. Gabriel. ©1895.

1. Do you fear the foe will in the conflict win?
Is the dark without you, darker still within?
Clear the darkened windows, open wide the door,
Let a little sunshine in.

CHORUS: Let the blessed sunshine in (the sunshine in),
Let the blessed sunshine in (the sunshine in),
Clear the darkened windows, open wide the door,
Let a little sunshine in.

2. Does your faith grow fainter in the cause you love?
Are your pray'rs unanswer'd by your God above?
Clear the darkened windows, open wide the door,
Let a little sunshine in.

3. Would you go rejoicing on the upward way,
Knowing naught of darkness, dwelling in the day?
Clear the darkened windows, open wide the door,
Let a little sunshine in.
