In the place of  Bur-dens drear-y,

Where the sor-row once had been,

 7<   7   7    7  -7  -7<   7  7<  -6 -7<
Since Je-sus took my heart all to piec-es

and put  a  lit-tle sun-shine in.

When Je-sus took my heart all to  piec-es

and put a lit-tle sun-shine in,

-5 -6 -6 -6  -6   7  -6  -5   -6  
He put a lit-tle joy and glad-ness

-7<-6  7   8    7   -9   9   
Where sad-ness once had been:

-7< -9 -9 -9  -9   -9   9  -7< -9
He gave a lit-tle love and glo-ry

-7<  -9 -9 -9  -9   -9   -7  -7<  -7
And took a-way the doubt and sin,

 7<   7  7  7   -7  -7<   7  -6  -6 -7< 
When Jesus took my heart all to piec-es

 7  -7< -7< -7< -7<  8    8  -7<
And put  a  lit-tle sun-shine in.

Verse 2

All the clouds have silver linings, 
Not a shadow is in sight,
Not a thou't of sad repining,
The way is always bright;
Wwas lost in sin and darkness
But the was is bright again,
Since Jesus took my heart all to pieces
and put a little sun-shine in.

Verse 3

So I press along rejoiceing
On the blessed glory road,
And I know that my Redeemer
Will share my ev'ry load;
I am singing hallelujah
For my soul is free from sin,
Since Jesus took my heart all to piec-es
and put a little sunshine in.
