Bluegrass Gospel Band Performs ‘Keep On The Sunny Side’

A talented group of bluegrass musicians performed a classic song about trouble and strife.

In life, problems, issues and other situations that result in pain and suffering occur. Often those hurdles and obstacles crop up unexpectedly and through no fault of our own. But staying with the Lord, seeking his help and guidance, can and will make those situations much more bearable. 

In a video posted to YouTube, The Brandenberger Family performs a terrific rendition of “Keep on the Sunny Side.” The old but beloved song is clear that all will face problems. However, the lyrics also mention that those trials and storms will not last forever.

In the video for the song posted to YouTube, the musicians play a variety of instruments. There is a bass guitar, while one young woman plays the violin and a second girl strums along on the fiddle. In addition to the three young ladies each playing an instrument, they also lend their beautiful voices, singing the lyrics to the classic song.

The song’s opening verse informs listeners that there are essentially two paths in life: a dark and troubled side and a bright and sunny one. The song then instructs listeners to remain on the sunny side of life because “it will help us every day” and will “brighten all our way.”

Near the conclusion, in the third and final verse, the musicians and songwriter share some helpful advice. The lyrics advise listeners to keep a positive attitude when facing the day and trust in the Lord.

“Let us greet with a song of hope each day
Though the moment be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Savior always”

The musicians pull off a cover that is very pleasing to the ear. Well done!

2 Corinthians 13:11 “Finally, brothers, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.”
