Say Hello To Sunshine.


Say hello to sunshine
The rain has gone at last
It’s left behind some diamonds
Sparkling in the grass.

Clouds may come tomorrow
But you can be prepared
So soak up the sunshine
And let your voice be heard.

Say hello to sunshine
Let sorrows fade away
Jesus suffered sorrows too
For many a day.

Let His love warm up your heart
And sparkle through your eyes
Send a stranger sunshine
As a loving surprise.

Someone’s head is lowered
They do not see the sun
Burdened and troubled folk
May give up one by one.

They may fall away but
You can lift them up
Hold out a helping hand
That’s warm with God’s love.

Wyn Barratt.

Hey Wyn, I love these verses. My middle name is sunshine (figuratively speaking), so this poem is right for me! Thank you my friend!
