37. Look to the Light-House

1 A beacon bright the Christian stands,
Upon the shore of time;
A lighthouse built on solid rock,
That rears its head sublime.

Look! Look!
Look to the light house, sailor,
It tells of danger near;
Look! Look!
Look to the lighthouse, sailor,
And guide thy vessel clear.

2 A tower high the Christian stands,
A clear and shining light,
To cast a gleam across the sea
Of earth’s dark, gloomy night. [Chorus]

3 Grand sentinel upon life’s coast,
Be faithful, true, and brave;
And ever keep your light ablaze,
Benighted souls to save. [Chorus]
