The Lighthouse

Here's a picture my friend Renea took at Long Beach. As soon as I saw it I thought it would make a fun photoshop project. I added a little paint here and there to enhance what was already a beautiful picture. It reminded me of that old song I use to sing as a little girl.

There's a lighthouse on the hillside
that overlooks life's sea.
When I'm tossed it sends out a light
that I might see.
And the light that shines in darkness now
will safely lead me home,
If it wasn't for the lighthouse,
my ship would sail no more.

Everyone that lives around us,
says tear that old lighthouse down,
The big ships don't sail this way anymore,
ain't no use in it standing round.
But then my mind goes back to that stormy night,
when just in time I saw the light
With the light from that old lighthouse,
that stands there on the hill.

And I thank God for The Lighthouse,
I owe my life to Him.
Jesus is The Lighthouse
and from the rocks of sin,
He has shown the light around me,
so that I might clearly see.
If it wasn't for The Lighthouse,
Where would this ship be?
