A Child Alone On the Shore

author unknown

A child alone on the shore
Waving his light up so high
To signal a ship that no one can see
In a rough darkened ocean and vast darkened sky

As every sailor passed by
They question the boy with the light
Why little one do you stand at your post
There is nothing and no one is sight

The young boy looked up his face all aglow
And waved his small lantern above and below
Please wait here with me, the ship you will see
Dear child explain to us, how do you know

I am firm in my faith, the answer is clear
I'm so very certain the ship will appear
The captain has told me and promised he'll come
Of course I believe his for I am his son

The Rebbe, our captain, his promise we'll keep
Knowing a Chossid's emunah proclaims
I'm firm in my faith the answer is clear
Vehu yigaleinu- Amen!
