556. Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam (I'll Be a Sunbeam)

1 Jesus wants me for a sunbeam,
To shine for Him each day;
In every way try to please Him:
At home, at school, at play.

A sunbeam, a sunbeam,
Jesus wants me for a sunbeam;
A sunbeam, a sunbeam,
I'll be a sunbeam for Him.

2 Jesus wants me to be loving
And kind to all I see;
Showing how pleasant and happy
His little one can be. [Refrain]

3 I will ask Jesus to help me
To keep my heart from sin,
Ever reflecting His goodness,
And always shine for Him. [Refrain]

4 I'll be a sunbeam for Jesus;
I can, if I but try;
Serving Him moment by moment,
Then live with Him on high. [Refrain]
