|Sung almost out of the hymnbook, Brightly Beams is a choir arrangement with Lead, Kindly Light sung in conjunction with the second verse. They have a similar theme, so they work well together.|
|Brightly beams our Father's Mercy|
From his lighthouse evermore.
But to us he gives the keeping
Of the lights along the shore.
Let the lower lights be burning,
Send a gleam across the wave.
Some poor, fainting struggling seaman
You may rescue, you may save.
Dark the night of sin has settle,
Loud the angry billows roar.
Eager eyes are watching, longing,
For the lights along the shore.
Trim your feeble lamp, my brother,
Some poor sailor, tempest-tossed
Trying now to make the harbor,
In the darkness may be lost.
Lead, kindly light, amid th'encircling gloom,
