You Stand

Upon the ready

On shores you Stand,

Rock steady,

Tower of Man!



Light the way,

Fill the Night,

Until you may

Sleep at Light.

Through the Night

Long through the Night
May always be
Your Tower's Light,
Bright and free.



At the edge of Night,
Lighthouse Beam;
Begin the day's Light
As God will Deem.

Marblehead Lighthouse on Southern Lake Erie

      The lighthouse has saved many a soul from annihilation by the rocks. A great tribute.
