Our Lighthouse--By Donna Wallace--United States

Our Lighthouse

I've been tossed upon the ocean
then brutally dumped on shore
My Lord has been my Lighthouse
and will be forevermore.

From my path I've often wandered
on a journey of guilt and shame
Lost, and alone I trembled
not knowing My Lord's name.

Yet, He was always with me
though His presence was unknown
My storm is finally over
because, in faith, I’ve grown.

I now have reached my understanding
of how The Father has saved my life
He is, unceasingly, my Lighthouse
who's delivered me from strife.

Though our seas are cold and rocky
at times we crash upon our shore
Our Lord will be our Lighthouse
for now...and evermore...
