GEC English Hymn

English Hymn 70

STANZA 1
Brightly beams our Father’s mercy
From His lighthouse evermore,

But to us He gives the keeping,
Of the lights along the shore

Chorus
Let the lower lights be burning!
Send a gleam across the wave!
Some poor fainting, struggling seaman
You may rescue, you may save.

STANZA 2
Dark the night of sin has settled,
Loud the angry billows roar;
Eager eyes are watching, longing,
For the lights, along the shore.

STANZA 3
Trim your feeble lamp, my brother,
Some poor sailor tempest-tossed,
Trying now to make the harbour,
In the darkness may be lost.
