John 8:12

"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."


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

          Chorus
          And I thank God for The Lighthouse, I owe my life to Him.
          Jesus is The Lighthouse and from the rocks of sin,
          He has shown the light around me, so that I might clearly see.
          If it wasn't for The Lighthouse, Where would this ship be?

        Everyone that lives around us, says tear that old lighthouse down,
        The big ships don't sail this way anymore, ain't no use in it standing round.
        But then my mind goes back to that stormy night, when just in time I saw the light
        With the light from that old lighthouse, that stands there on the hill.

          Chorus
          And I thank God for The Lighthouse, I owe my life to Him.
          Jesus is The Lighthouse and from the rocks of sin,
          He has shown the light around me, so that I might clearly see.
          If it wasn't for The Lighthouse, Where would this ship be?
