The wind picked up strength, ripped the sail from the mast!
The waves came in crashing, my boat filled up fast!
I knew I needed to turn back to the safety I'd known,
But how in this darkness could I ever find home?
Could I ever find home?
Suddenly a Light came shining through that dark night,As fast as it started, well the wind all but died
I stood there staring not believing my eyes!
Could it be a Lighthouse out there?
Could it be that Someone out there
Could see the trouble I'd gotten myself in?
I headed for the Light, just like a Close Friend!
I jumped from the boat, swam hard for
He held me tight gave me warm clothes,
Hot dinner in bed
And sang me to sleep with His lap beneath my head
He said: I'll be your Lighthouse when
life rains on you
When even your good days find you sand and blue
All through your ups and your downs, girl
I'll always be around.
