GAITHER VOCAL BAND I AM THE LIGHTHOUSE LYRICS

In the midst of World War II with tensions running high...
Off the eastern seaboard, one dark and foggy night...
The captain sighted out ahead, just off the starboard side,
the beacon of another ship.... The two would soon collide.

"Adjust your course ten degrees to the north," he radioed ahead.
Much to his amazement, the 'ship' replied instead...
"Adjust your course ten degrees to the south."
The captain felt a chill.
His eyes grew cold and narrowed, and the two drew closer still.
"I'm the captain of this vessel, and this is a command.
Adjust your course ten degrees to the north, or receive a reprimand."
Again, the voice replied, as calm and smooth as glass...

"Adjust your course ten degrees to the south. I'm a seaman, second class."
I'm a U. S. Naval Destroyer," snapped the captain with a shout,
"Now adjust your course, ten degrees, no discussion. Over and out."
They drew unnervingly closer; his eyes fixed on the light.
This time the voice ripped through the air like lightning tears the night.
"I am the lighthouse. I'm the lighthouse!

The path you choose is perilous.
Destruction lies ahead if you delay.

But if you trust me, I will lead you through safely.
Adjust your course, and you'll be on your way.
I am the lighthouse."

How many years will a man stay blind, before he learns to see?
And how many doors will a man kick down, while I offer him the key?
And as I begin to light the way, will he fail to recognize
That I'm here to light his path, not blind his eyes?

I am the lighthouse. I'm the lighthouse.
The path you choose is perilous.
Destruction lies ahead if you delay.
But if you trust me, I will lead you through safely.
Adjust your course, and you'll be on your way.

I am the lighthouse."
