The Lighthouse

by Ronnie Hinson

"There's a lighthouse on a hillside / that overlooks life's sea. / When I'm tossed He sends out a light, / light that I might see. / And the light that shines in darkness now / Will safely lead me on / If it wasn't for the lighthouse / This ship would sail no more.

"Oh I thank God for the lighthouse / I owe my life to Him / King Jesus is the lighthouse / Upon the rocks of sin / He has shone a light around me / That I could clearly see / If it wasn't for the lighthouse / Then where would this ship be.

"Everybody that lives around us / says tear the lighthouse down / You know the big ships / they don't sail by this way no more / so what's the use of it standing 'round? / Ahh, but then my mind goes way on back / to that stormy night, / when just in time, oh thank God I saw the light / 'Twas the light from that old lighthouse / that still stands up there on a hill.

"Oh I thank God for the lighthouse / I owe my life to Him / King Jesus is the lighthouse / Upon the rocks of sin / He has shone a light around me / That I could clearly see / If it wasn't for the lighthouse / Then where would this ship be.

"Oh, If it wasn't for the lighthouse / Then where would this ship be."1

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, how can I ever thank you enough for giving your Son, Jesus, to be the saving lighthouse for a sin-sick lost world that includes me. Thank you for saving me from a lost eternity by forgiving me for all my sins and for your gift of eternal life to spend eternity with you in Heaven forever. Please help me to point others to Jesus, the lighthouse. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."
