"Let the Sun Shine On" is a song in the Broadway adaption of Frozen, following directly from "Vuelie". The song introduces the characters of Elsa and Anna as children, as well as their parents.

The song was previously titled "Anna and Elsa" early during the show's Denver tryouts in 2017 and had noticeably different lyrics. The early version of the song was sung primarily by Grand Pabbie, who also acted as a narrator in the show. In this narrative, the song was reprised by Pabbie immediately before "Monster".

"Let the Sun Shine On" reuses verses from the song "We Know Better" - an outtake from the 2013 animated film.

Lyrics

Anna:
Do you want to build a snowman?
C'mon, let's go and play

Elsa:
I can cover this whole place in snow
I'm not supposed to, though

Anna:
Yeah, just do it anyway

Do it for your sister!
Elsa please, oh please
I can't do the things you do

That's what I'm talking about!

Elsa: You really want to build a snowman?
Anna: You know I do.
Elsa: We'll stay up late and build that snowman!
Anna: Yes!
Elsa and Anna: Me and you

Chorus:
Nah nah yanana
Nah nah yanana

Once there was a family
Beloved by all
A king, a queen, two pricesses
And the story starts when they were small

King Agnarr: Ladies, what have you been up to?

Chorus:
Elsa was a special child
From her first frozen tear
Her magic filled her parents' hearts
With so much love and fear

Queen Iduna: Elsa, no! What do we say?
Elsa: Magic must stay a secret.
Queen Iduna: There are just some things we can't do in public.
Anna: Like run naked in the breeze!
Elsa, King, Queen: Anna!

Anna:
Let the sun shine on
Let our hearts be bright
Like this perfect, happy, shiny, summer day

King and Queen: Let the sun shine on
Anna: 'Cause it's alright
Family: Together we can keep the storm at bay

Elsa and Anna:
1, 2, 3 together, clap together, snap together
You and me together, knees together, freeze together
Up or down together, princess crown together
Always be together, you and me

Chorus:
Once there was a family
With secrets to keep
As rulers in the land
Where respect for the crown runs deep

Anna: Freeze my butt!

Chorus:
And so the royal family
Is ever on display
And people loved the princesses
And watch them as they play

Let the sun shine on
Let our lives be free
Let the promises of our land be sure and strong
Let our hearts be blown
By this melody
All of winter love

Na na na heyana
(Nowa heyano)
Naha heyana
(Nowa heyano)
Na na na heyana
(Nowa heyano)
Naha heyana

Let the sun shine on
Over Arendelle
Let the crown be strong and let your love be true
Bless our daughters fair
Who we love so well
We will look to you

Anna:
Do you want to build a snowman?
C'mon, let's go and play

Elsa:
I can cover this whole place in snow
I'm not supposed to, though

Anna:
Yeah, just do it anyway

Do it for your sister!
Elsa please, oh please
I can't do the things you do

That's what I'm talking about!

Elsa: You really want to build a snowman?
Anna: You know I do.
Elsa: We'll stay up late and build that snowman!
Anna: Yes!
Elsa and Anna: Me and you

Pabbie:
This is the story of a family
A long time ago
A king, a queen, two pricesses
A summer night, and snow

King Agnarr: Girls, what have you been up to?

Pabbie:
Elsa was a special child
That much was clear
Her magic filled her parents' hearts
With so much love and fear

Queen Iduna: Elsa, sweetheart, what did we say?
Elsa: Magic must stay a secret.
Queen Iduna: There are just some things we don't do in public.
Anna: Like run naked in the breeze!

Pabbie: (Anna:)
Then there was Anna, the second child
(Freeze my belly!)
Funny and fearless, and running wild
(Freeze my face!)
How she loved her sister from the very start
Yes, Elsa had her heart

Elsa and Anna:
1, 2, 3 together, clap together, snap together
You and me together, knees together, freeze together
Up or down together, princess crown together
Always be together, you and me

Pabbie:
This is the story of a family
With secrets to keep
As rulers in a land
Where respect for the crown runs deep

Anna: Freeze my butt!

Pabbie:
And so the royal family
Is ever on display
And people loved the princesses
And watch them as they play

Chorus:
Anna and Elsa, side by side
The light in the darkness, the kingdom ???
The promise of our future, sure and strong
Warms us all year long

Na na na heyana
(Nowa heyano)
Naha heyana
(Nowa heyano)
Na na na heyana
(Nowa heyano)
Naha heyana

Na na na heyana
Hahiyaha naha
Naheya heya na yanuwa
Anhahe yunuwana

Anna and Elsa, right now you’re small
But one day you’ll grow up and lead us all
Through days of cold and storms we suffer through
We will look to you

Pabbie:
This is the story of a family
Splintered and scared
When a house has this much damage
Can it ever be repaired?
