Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam

Children’s Songbook (1989, 2017), p. 60

1. Jesus wants me for a sunbeam, To shine for him each day; In ev’ry 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.

A sunbeam, a sunbeam, Jesus wants me for a sunbeam. A sunbeam, a sunbeam, I’ll be a sunbeam for him.
