The beacon’s light has faded,
the foghorn is now but mute
the lighthouse stands alone
on the hill of ill-repute.
Silenced now, from the left,
the warning sounds no more
the lighthouse is in the dark
upon this nation’s shaken shore.
Once a beam unto the world,
a responsibility we all shared
now the people of this republic
are caught up in Satan’s snare.
In the past we stood in honor,
to the God in whom we trust
now we offend and discriminate
with His truth on greed and lust.
The church once held the beacon,
in the palm of its blessed hand
but it no longer wants or cares
to take a bold and daring stand.
It’s time to wake up the masses,
and shine His light on our grime
for to hold back the Gospel’s truth
is a spiritual sin and crime.
Let me be perfectly honest,
my God I will always defend
for I rather be a foghorn . . .
then to be ~ this world’s friend!
King James Version
“Ye adulterers and adulteresses,
know ye not that the friendship of the world
is enmity with God? whosoever therefore
will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
