FAREWELL SONG

Let us sing of farewell,
    Let us sing of farewell,
For the parting hour comes,

    And its advent impels
That we sing of the days
    We remember with pride,
When striving for fame
    We have stood side by side.

Let us sing of old times
    Ere the new day begins
And our pathway around
    Its bright radiance flings.
There’s a charm in the past,
    Which engages the heart,
And the lovelier grows
    As the swift years depart.

To our school days, farewell,
    To the old school farewell
To its shelter and shade,
    And the dear Convent bell;
To the class-halls of fame,
    And the chapel so dim.
Where stillness is sweet
    As the close of a hymn.
