Ode to a Bridge

Majestically she stretches golden arms across the bay.
To the great Pacific Ocean she serves as the gateway.
Twenty- seven meters wide nearly two thousand long,
Eighty thousand tons of steel makes her good and strong.

On January fifth in the year of thirty three
Construction actually started for the whole world to see.
Eleven brave men lost their lives and fell into the bay
Nineteen more were saved by nets and only fell halfway.

One point seven billion cars have driven o’er the bay
And thousands more drive over her every single day.
Her head is high above the clouds so she can clearly see
All the people crossing her and all the ships at sea.

With strength and beauty she has stood, a monument to man.
They said that you could not be built; we said we know you can.
So here’s to Joseph Strauss, the man who knew it was his fate
To build this glorious structure that we call “The Golden Gate”.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
