Brightly Beams our Fathers Mercy

16 10 2015

1. 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.
2. Dark the night of sin has settled;
Loud the angry billows roar.
Eager eyes are watching, longing,
For the lights along the shore.
3. Trim your feeble lamp, my brother;
Some poor sailor, tempest-tossed,
Trying now to make the harbor,
In the darkness may be lost.
I LOVE this song! I heard it earlier this week and it really hit me hard. I never really reflected on the meaning of it until this past time. Our Father in heaven has given us a very special and sacred responsibility to be the lower lights here on earth. There are so many people that are all around us who are being tossed around by the currents of the sea. They are struggling to find any bit of light to catch hold of so that they can know which direction to face. We have to be the lower lights for them to catch hold of. If we dont have our light burning then someone may be lost in the darkness. We have to always be prepared!
This week was really busy. Tons of meetings! New missionaries came in and got elder dyer and i super sick…The missionaries from the MTC always bring colds into the mission and infect all of us…super annoying but i love them still. haha.
