Lyrics

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

Refrain

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.

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

Refrain

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

Refrain

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