1. Night time is another word for sadness
We liken gladness unto the day,
Darkest hours come before the dawning
of golden morning,
And so I say

Don't mind the darkness,
Morning will come;
Shadows are bound to go by
And when they fly
Rosy dawn will kiss the sky
So don't mind your troubles,
We all have some,
Watch for the star of the dawn and keep saying
"Morning will come!"

2. If the sun were always shining for us
It soon would bore us to view the day,
Ups and downs are what make life worth living
To be forgiving,
And learn to say.
