The Sunny Side of Life

Happy Face Yellow Springs, Ohio
I was really down one day and as I was driving downtown Dayton I saw a happy face someone had painted onto the side of a log by the side of the road. It was so unexpected and I don't know it just made me smile. I don't know if the person who did it realized the impact it might have, maybe they did, but seeing it  cheered me up no end. 
So I decided I would do a happy face too and hopefully it brings a smile to some passerby in town.

There's a dark & a troubled side of life
There's a bright, there's a sunny side, too
Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also may view

[chorus:] Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

The storm and its fury broke today,
Crushing hopes that we cherish so dear;
Clouds and storms will, in time, pass away
The sun again will shine bright and clear.
Let us greet with the song of hope each day
Tho' the moment be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Saviour away
Who keepeth everyone in His care
