Always Cheerful

 Let our hearts be always cheerful
Why should murmuring enter there?
When our kind and loving Father makes us children of His care
With His gentle hand to lead us
Should the powers of sin assail
He has promised grace to help us
Never can his promise fail

When we turn aside from duty
Comes the pain of doing wrong
And a shadow creeping o'er us
Checks the rapture of our song
Oh! The good are always happy
And their path is ever bright
Let us heed the blessed council
Shun the wrong and love the right
Always cheerful
Always cheerful
Sunshine all around we see
Full of beauty is the path of duty
Cheerful we may always be!
~Fanny Crosby~
