* * * I Thank GOD for the lighthouse * * *
I thank GOD for the lighthouse I owe my life
to thee. I thank God for all the storms He has
brought my ship through, when the waves were
raging and the winds were blowing. I thought
that all hope was gone. When my ship leaned
and touch the ocean’s surface, and my sails were
torn. Oh God I felt like I had lost my way forever
and fear and dismay was all around me. But then
I lifted up my eyes to the hilltop and I saw the lighthouse
shinning right at me. Tears flooded my face for
I knew it was a guide for me to
follow, that I might find my way out of the storm.
LORD I know I couldn’t steer my ship out from
those, boisterous waves that covered me. I
was so battered by the stormy seas……… It
was you that steered my ship right into your safe
harbour. So I thank God for the light house I owe my life
to thee, Jesus is the lighthouse………….. Now I can clearly see.
If it wasn’t for the light house where would my ship be?
