Lord let me be a lighthouse
Let my light the pathway show
Lord let me be a lighthouse
To those lost and sad with woe.

Lord let me be a lighthouse
In this world of doubt and sin
Lord let me be a lighthouse
To guide the lost to Him

Lord let me be a lighthouse
May my beam forever shine
Lord let me be a lighthouse
To the glory that is Thine

Lord let me be a lighthouse
To give light to all who pass
Lord let me be a lighthouse
To guide them to peace at last.

Lord let me be a lighthouse
Let the glowing warm the way
Lord let me be a lighthouse
Let them come to Thee today.

Lord let me be a lighthouse
Let the brightness dispel the din
Lord let me be a lighthouse
With its streaming conquer sin

Lord let me be a lighthouse
Let my searching never cease
Lord let me be a lighthouse
'Til all are blessed with peace.

Matthew 5:16 NIV-In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

Nice extended metaphor!

In a poem like this with a lot of repetition, you want to come up with some good, complex rhymes, to counteract the predictability of the stanzas. Give your readers something delightful at the end of each stanza.

There's some very pleasant imagery in this.

I like your thoughts in this poem. My favorite stanza is, “Lord let me be a lighthouse - Let the brightness dispel the din - Lord let me be a lighthouse - With its streaming conquer sin. May we all take your message to heart. You’ve chosen the perfect verse for your poem.

Love the message and the beauty of the alliteration in this poem. Each stanza shed light on our responsibility as believers.

I liked this a lot. Sometimes repetitions is good to drive the point home. To me simple is better than complex, (stays with you longer) good job!
