the Lighthouse...






The Lighthouse
By Ronnie Hinson
(c) 1971

There's a lighthouse on the hillside
That overlooks life's sea.
When I'm tossed it sends out a light,
Tis a light that I might see.
And the light that shines in darkness now
Will safely lead us o'er.
If it wasn't for the lighthouse,
My ship would be no more.

And I thank God for the lighthouse,
I owe my life to Him.
For Jesus is the lighthouse
And from the rocks of sin;
He has shone a light around me
That I could clearly see,
If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Tell me where would this ship be.

Everybody that lives around us
Says tear that lighthouse down.
The big ships don't sail this way anymore,
There's no use of it standing around.
Then my mind goes back to that stormy night,
When just in time I saw the light;
Yes the light from that old lighthouse
That stands up there on the hill.

And I thank God for the lighthouse,
I owe my life to Him.
For Jesus is the lighthouse
And from the rocks of sin;
He has shone a light around me
That I could clearly see,
If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Tell me where would this ship be.

If it wasn't for the lighthouse,
Tell me, where would this ship be?

  1. I love this song - and this is my absolute favorite lighthouse! You know we used to live where this lighthouse stands at the mouth of the river that goes into the sea!

  2. We sang this in choir in high school, and I still sing it every time we see a Lighthouse. I think Bruce knows the lyrics now pretty well, too. :)
