The Lighthouse

          D                               G                D
There's a lighthouse on the hillside that overlooks life's sea.
D                                     E            A
When I'm tossed, it sends out a light that I might see.
        D                    D7                G              Em 
And the light that shines in darkness now will safely lead us o'er.
      D                              A                D
If it wasn't for the lighthouse my ship would be no more.


(Chorus)
            D                         G              D
And I thank God for the lighthouse, I owe my life to Him.
    D                           E                 A
For Jesus is the lighthouse and from the rocks of sin.
       D                            G               D
He has shone a light around me that I might clearly see.
      D                                  A                     D
If it wasn't for the lighthouse, tell me where would this ship be?


     D                                G                    D
Everybody that lives around us says, "Tear that lighthouse down.
D                                                 E                   A
The big ships don't sail this way anymore there's no use it standing 'round".
        D                      D7                G              Em
Then my mind goes back to that stormy night when just in time I saw the Light.
         D                                   A                      D
Yes, the light from that old lighthouse that stands up there on the hill.


(chorus)

      D                                  A                     D
If it wasn't for the lighthouse, tell me where would this ship be?
