Representative Text

1 I’m a mariner out on a dark troubled sea;
But the Saviour has offered my Pilot to be;
To His loving control I’ll surrender my soul
And steer for the lights of home.

Refrain:
The lights of home are gleaming bright,
To cheer me thro’ the stormy night;
I’ve naught to fear with them in sight,
The lights, the lights, the lights of my home, sweet home.

2 ‘Tis the love of the one Whom the world crucified
That has kindled the gleam me to glory to guide;
And these lights cannot fail, howe’er wild is the gale,
I’ll trust to the lights of home. [Refrain]

3 Fellow sailor with me as we breast ev’ry wave,
Fix your eyes on the lights that are shining to save;
Others fade by-and-by, leave you helpless to die,
O steer for the lights of home. [Refrain]
