“I’ll Be a Sunbeam” is a very popular children’s Christian hymn composed by Nellie Talbot while sung to music composed in 1900 by Edwin O. Excell. Virtually nothing is known about lyricist Nellie Talbot; attempts to search census records suggest that she may have been born in Missouri in 1874 and was living in Chicago in 1910, but these identifications are speculative. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a children’s primary program which includes “Sunbeams”, a class for 3 year old children.

The acrylic is cut into a 3 inch circle and then laser etched with the artistic depiction.
