Representative Text

1 Out on life’s waters we’re sailing,
Out across the sea,
But with a courage unfailing,
Signal lights have we.

Signals, signals, bright and shining signals,
Set for you and me, harbor lights to be;
Signals, signals, bright and shining signals,
Guiding us as on we sail across life’s sea.

2 Patience out yonder is beaming,
Hope burns clear and strong,
Faith o’er the waters is beaming,
Though the way be long. [Refrain]

3 Truth in the harbor is glowing,
Like a holy star,
Love its bright signal is showing,
Though the shore be far. [Refrain]

4 Never can evil betide us,
Thro’ the day or nights,
These are the beacons that guide us,
Precious signal lights. [Refrain]
