The Sounds of the Oceans are like friends to me,
They make life easier and help me to see.
That Life can be Peaceful and yet full of strife,
The Waves can be soft or Cut like a knife.
You need friends to help you swim,
To struggle alone or rely on them.
Family also can help you move through the sea,
And you can't help but be.
Grateful to all who love you for you,
They are always there to see you through.
God rules the ocean and all the sounds,
So in Him we must be found.
Trusting in Him to carry us through,
The waves of the ocean and all that is blue.
Lighthouses Lonely Sentinels
There are lonely sentinels,
standing guard o'er choppy seas;
Serving to protect ships, when in danger they could be.
The lights blink out a rhythm, showing captains where they are,
For each lighthouse location is known both near and far.
The light shines forth over waves and shore,
Telling mariners, "Danger waits,
Seas run high; you'll ground;
NO CLOSER STRAY;
Keep your ship and crew safe;
STAY AWAY; STAY AWAY.
How wonderful is this,
our fragile land;
and all made of sand.
So often come storms, bringing danger and fright;
More often than not,
they arrive in the night.
high tide gales,
And full-blown hurricanes
cause all to feel frail.
But, with proud strength,
the lights continue to shine,
Unerringly guiding ships through storms on the brine.
They stand as tall sentinels,
to protect all from the reef;
Their warnings? Life savers,
to hardy men of the sea.
History records lives lost to mighty waves,
When there were no lighthouses to show the way.
As Christians, we live
and serve in the LIGHT,
And have no fear of a storm
in the night.
JESUS ! IS OUR ANCHOR
GOD-GIVEN, FOR SURE. HE WILL
GUIDE TO SAFE HARBOR,
AND LIGHT HIS SHORE
JESUS IS MY LIGHTHOUSE !!
"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.
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?
