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.
