Flamborough lighthouse beaming its light at night

The lighthouse fights using

Revolutions of light to secure the night giving

Urgent warnings until day’s dawning

Sailors learning and from danger turning

Treacherous rocks swapped for docks and a sweetheart’s yearning

“LORD, help!” they cried in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.  He calmed the storm to a whisper and stilled the waves.  What a blessing was that stillness as he brought them safely into harbor! Psalm 107:28-30 NLT
