A Lighthouse Unto Thy Feet

Jesus is a Lighthouse
A Tower in the dark
The One who holds the lantern
A great enduring Spark.

Like a flame that burns eternal
He’s a Torch, forever true
The One who holds the answers
When I don’t know what to do.

He’s the One who holds the candle
Over angry waves so steep
He’s the lifeline that doth save me
In a raging sea, so deep.

He’s a strong and steady Pilot
An answer to my plea
The One who throws the anchor
When I’m drifting out to sea

He’s a brightly shining Beacon
Always steady like a rock
A Fortress when I’m weary
A Harbor on life’s dock.

Jesus is a Lighthouse
In Him, I will abide
A Hand when I am weary
A never-ending Tide.

Poem "An Autumn Leaf"

An Autumn Leaf
by Frank Maguire

A leaf once green, a vibrant green
Laced with a silken gown
Now hangs it's head, a weary head
The leaf has turned to brown

A rushing wind, a bracing wind
That blows incessantly
The leaf is weak, so very weak
As it falls down from the tree

A spiral path, a weary path
Is woven without a sound
The sun it sleeps, a deepening sleep
As the leaf falls to the ground

A thought of life, a fragile life
Now hanging by a thread
A thought of death, a seasonal death
As the leaf will soon be dead

A bed of leaves, a grave of leaves
Lie motionless today
The summertime, has had it's time
Now Autumn is on it's way
