We part today to meet, perchance, Till God shall call us home; And from this room we wander forth, Alone, alone to roam. And friends we've known in childhood's days May live but in the past, But in the realms of light and love May we all meet at last.
Farewell old room, within thy walls No more with joy we'll meet; Nor voices join in morning song, Nor ev'ning hymn repeat. But when in future years we dream Of scenes of love and truth, Our fondest tho'ts will be of thee, The school-room of our youth.
Farewell to thee we loved so well, Farewell our schoolmates dear; The tie is rent that linked our souls In happy union here. Our hands are clasped, our hearts are full, And tears bedew each eye; Ah, 'tis a time for fond regrets, When school-mates say "Good Bye."
