1 Our hearts are filled with joy today;
We’ve sighted the golden gate!
Its light is beaming o’er our way:
We’ve sighted the golden gate!
Tossed on the sea we’ve sighed for home,
O’er oceans wide for this we’ve come,
The voyage now is almost done,
We’ve sighted the golden gate!

Refrain:
Then sing, sing, O sailor, sing!
Let joy, joy each heart elate!
The light has come, we’re almost home,
We’ve sighted the golden gate!

2 They’ve signaled us from off the land;
We’ve sighted the golden gate!
Our friends are gath’ring on the strand;
We’ve sighted the golden gate!
That we of entrance should not fail,
We answered to the pilot’s hail,
With him on board we safely sail:
We’ve sighted the golden gate! [Refrain]

3 How light the trials that have come:
We’ve sighted the golden gate!
Forgotten now in sight of home:
We’ve sighted the golden gate!
The storms and clouds will soon be past,
Then sheltered from the stormy blast,
With sails all furled and anchor cast:
We’ve sighted the golden gate! [Refrain]

4 Our God, with grateful hearts to Thee:
We’ve sighted the golden gate!
Once lost on life’s tempestuous sea:
We’ve sighted the golden gate!
Our Lord and Savior, soon at home,
The grace that saved we’ll gladly own;
’Twas all of grace and that alone:
We’ve sighted the golden gate! [Refrain]
