Lyrics

School and Community Version
1. As down the road of life we go
To seek our Promised Land,
We'll often find our progress slow
And need a helping hand.
So day by day and mile on mile,
However rough and long,
Let's greet each other with a smile
and sing some cheering song!

REFRAIN
Sing along! Oh, sing along!
At work or while at play;
If skies be gray and dull the day,
Just sing along the way!
Sing Along! Oh, sing along!
And make the sad heart gay,
You'll always find the sunshine if
You sing along the way!

2. If ever we grow tired and worn
And skies above seem grey,
If all the burdens we have borne
Grow harder ev'ry day,
Perhaps some old familiar strain
That we've forgotten long,
Will bring the sunshine back again,
So, cheer up with a song!

Ballad Version
1. There's sunshine in your smile, dear heart,
The blue sky's in your eyes;
I'm waiting all the while, dear heart,
For some new sweet surprise!
There's music in your voice whene'er
You tell me of your love;
You seem to sing along through life
Like skylark far above!

REFRAIN
Sing along! Oh, sing along!
Just sing along the way!
If skies be gray and dull the day,
Just sing along, you say!
Sing along! Oh, sing along!
And make the sad heart gay,
You'll always find the sunshine if
You sing along the way!

2. We've been together, you and I,
For many gladsome years;
We've seen the rainbow in the sky
A-shining through our tears.
Each other's joys and sorrows, too,
We've shared, dear, right along,
But through it all you never failed
To cheer me with your song!
