Rough seas ahead
the captain cried
it was easy to hear
the weight in his voice
a weary look
a furrowed brow

And we, his crew,
Held firm
Closed not our eyes

Waves crashed against the bow
We did not scramble
But we knew haste
Competent haste
Battened down the hatches
And waited
For the signal
From shore

Oh lighthouse keeper
Do you duty
Keep us from crashing
Against the rocks
Guide us home
As only you know how

We know the way
This crew
Will not fall down around you
