Lights Along The Shore

My life is like a ship out at sea,

Burdens toss me about as ocean waves;

I am Thankful God watches over me,

My compass is set ~ I know Jesus Saves.

Trials come and press down on me,

It's then I trust Jesus ~ He is my Anchor;

Waves of trouble allow me to see,

Jesus has Control so I can conquer.

I keep my eyes on the distant shore,

My ship is tossed as if to sink;

I bow to pray as the ocean waves roar,

My faith must be firm and not shrink.

Jesus in my Captain 'til life is through,

With Him ~ I will not lose my way;

The Lighthouse Beam is within my view,

He leads and guides me to Eternal Day.

The lights are bright along the shore,

They glisten as diamonds in the night;

The Beacon guides while breakers roar,

He has kept me safe and in His sight.

Some day, my Vessel will safely land,

I'll meet loved ones who passed on before;

God will smile and tenderly take my hand,

Then I'll be at Home on Heaven's Shore.

You are the light of the world. . . Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
