A performance of the TTBB version:


Brightly beams our Father's mercy
From his lighthouse evermore,
But to us he gives the keeping
Of the lights along the shore.

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.

  1. Beautiful, manageable arrangement 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jul 2014

    I have always loved this hymn, but it seems that the men in our congregation typically have the "corner on the market" with respect to arrangements and opportunities to sing the piece. I was delighted to find this beautiful arrangement for SATB. With a full sound and harmonious accompaniment, our choir is finding it quite straightforward and easy to learn.
