Words by Edward Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

Oh, I long for to reach dat hebenly shore,
To dip in de golden sea;
To meet old Peter a standing in de door,
To dip in de golden sea.
He'd say to me, oh, how do you do?
Come set right yonder in de ivery pew;
Oh. good colored people, go clar clean through,
To dip in de golden sea.

Den dip me, bathe me, sisters, you and me,
Come get in de boat, for we all gwine float,
For to dip in de golden sea.

Oh. we'll all ride behind a silver white steed,
To dip in de golden sea;
And every one a Baptist, an' no other creed.
To dip in de golden sea.
Den I look down on de world below,
And watch you niggers a shoveling snow;
While angel fishes dey nip my toe,
To dip in de golden sea.-Chorus.

In de moonlight, oh, dar I'll lay on my back.
To dip in de golden sea;
As happy as a clam when de tide am slack,
To dip in de golden sea.
When I'll get dar I'll wear white wings,
Have a crown on head with lots of other things;
And shout, hallelujahs, de big choir sing,
To dip in de golden sea.-Chorus.
