Copyright, 1881, by E. H. Harding.

Dar's a heap, heap of sin on de shore,
Debbil rars up his head and he roar,
Oh! he cotch you mighty quick,
Make you feel kinder sick,
And you's spiled up forever, evermore, sahi
If we want for to live all alive,
In de lake of forgiveness take a dive,
Den go float off de shore,
Whar disaster will pour,
Ant' swim out, my chil'en, for glory.

Oh, swim out for glory, my chil'en,
Swim for de prize,
Strike out for Angel Island,
Whar you nebber dies.
Den swim out for glory, chil'en,
Swim for de prize,
At Angel Island, whar you nebber.
Hardly ebber dies.

Oh! de cbil'en of sin ev'ry whars,
Will go kitin' down de deep, dark stairs;
Whar de fires are kept ablaz¯
No matter what you says.
And vou's chained den for fit., million yean, ¯ah!
But M good gets a crown on d*e. * hair,
And dey's always a-wingin' in de ^ir,
Eatin' wif golden spoons,
Singin' sweet, easy tunes,
And a-floatin' in der sea-wave of gkrfy.-Chorus
