"SUNSHINE & RAIN"
Music & Lyrics by Sonia King
Copyright 1979 Sonia King


When I woke up this morning
and I opened up my eyes,
I saw the sun was rising
in the paleness of the sky.
I looked at life around me &
I felt so blessed & free
and I thanked the God of Heaven
for giving these things to me.

I looked up to the white clouds,
and I saw the birds - they flew
to the place from which they came
to the far land which they knew.
I saw the flowers blooming,
and the valley turning green
and I thanked the God of heaven
for giving these things to me.

CHORUS A:
The sun makes me happy, the rain makes me cry.
Hope in the future for this world is passing by.
Thank God for blessings which you & I have shared.
Thanks be to God - for His tender loving care.

I looked up to the mountains
rising high up in the sky.
I looked at the snowcapped beauty
and the place where eagles fly.
I heard the rain falling,
through the summer leaves.
And I thanked the God of Heaven,
for giving these things to me.

CHORUS B:
God made the sunshine & God made the rain,
And God gave me love so I could share it with my
friends.
God gave me blessings - much more than I deserve.
God is the answer.  Fear Him and keep His word.

The sun has gone but life goes on,
tomorrow's a new day.
The rain has fallen on the ground,
the clouds have passed away.
I lay my head upon my bed
and I close my weary eyes.
And I dream about a brand new day,
and a golden morning sky.
