Representative Text

1 The signal lights are burning, burning bright,
For all upon the pilgrim’s way;
Keep waiting, waiting, watching for the light,
And never from the Saviour stray.

Refrain:
Then watch the signal lights,
God’s holy word still points the way,
Oh, watch the signal lights,
And never from the Saviour stray.

2 The red lights say “of danger now beware,”
Guard well your tho’ts while passing on your way;
Ne’er venture where you may not with a prayer,
There’s danger there, yes, danger there. [Refrain]

3 The bright, the white light ever keep in view,
The pure, the blest, the Saviour’s signal light;
Protect, and ne’er reject it, ‘tis for you,
To guide you safely to heaven bright. [Refrain]
