Before the Light

 

Lighthouse by the harbor gray;

beacon for those whose craft might stray,

before the light breaks on the shore

before the dawn of day;

before the light breaks on the shore,

and the shadows are no more…

 

Gift of light for all to see,

ill-fated they would otherwise be,

to find safe harbor on the shore,

to guide their craft at sea;

before the light breaks on the shore,

and the shadows are no more…

 

Will you as the lighthouse be?

rescuing waywards from the sea?

where violent waves and darkness claim

wealthy, weary, strong and lame;

before the light breaks on the shore

before the final hour…

before the light breaks on the shore,

and the shadows are no more.
