In the dark and quite of night
Above the stable and manger
Showed a star so bright,
A guide away from danger.
In the relentless waves of the sea
where the shore is no where near
Stands the beacon of a prophecy
Lighting the path so clear.
In the desert so harsh and dry
Below the dunes on the sand
Sits an Oasis clear to the eye
To offer shelter from the land.
In this world so long forgotten
Is the man who died for our sin;
God's son, the only begotten,
A new life for a sinner to begin.
In the world of so much hostility
Remember our Lord is the reason
We here at The Maritime Sentry
Wish you a warm Christmas season.
