I was lost out at sea tired in an old beat down boat
There was no-one by my side to provide courage to row
The storm rose and beat upon my little boat with no mercy
I tried to row this way and that way but went nowhere
Then a small flicker of a light caught my weary eyes
It shone bright and disappeared before I could blink
Once again it shone brightly across the ocean storm,
It was the steadfast lighthouse showing me the way
Incessantly, the lighthouse continued to bring me in to dock
Revealing dangerous coastlines and hazardous shoals till was safe
I have this similar steadfast lighthouse in the storm of my life today
The Lord is my light and salvation, my Redeemer, Savior and friend
