Keeper of My Lighthouse
By Chrissy Siggee
Keeper of my lighthouse, please
Shine in me today.
Standing firm on God my Rock,
May I never stray.
I Am the solid Rock on which you stand.
Clouds of fear impair my sight,
Doubt upon the source.
Trying hard to do what's right,
Help me stay on course.
I will always be there to light your way.
Keeper of my lighthouse, know
You are in control.
Lead me from this gloom of night,
Compass for my soul.
I will steer thee beyond your darkest night.
Like ships off course I wander,
Onto darkened reef.
Lord, steer me safely yonder.
Bring me back from grief.
I will lead if you will only follow.
Keeper of my lighthouse, you
Bathe me in your light.
Radiance makes straight my path,
Shine with all your might.
I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.
Through this storm of dreadful pain,
Waves consume my life.
Bring me through my tempest strain,
Lead me from this strife.
I will guide thee through every storm of life.
Keeper of my lighthouse, come!
Let your bright light shine.
Casting doubts and fears away,
Save this life of mine.
Child, I Am the Keeper of your lighthouse.
