The Lighthouse

words & music 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
T’was the light from that old lighthouse
that still stands up there on a hill.
