Brightly Beams Our Father's Mercy

Brightly Beams Our Father's Mercy, piano solo PDF audio

Lighthouses are one of my favorite things, and this is one of my all-time favorite hymns! This piano solo invokes images of the constant beacon of a lighthouse up on a cliff, guiding sailors safely home through a storm.

"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 5:14-16)

Such is the opportunity that each of us has to be a beacon of light to help and serve and save others, guiding them home to our Father in Heaven.

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.
Dark the night of sin has settled;
Loud the angry billows roar.
Eager eyes are watching, longing,
For the lights along the shore.
Trim your feeble lamp, my brother;
Some poor sailor, tempest-tossed,
Trying now to make the harbor,
In the darkness may be lost.
