Representative Text

1 Forward! forward!
Banners bright surround us,
Forward! forward!
Music fills the air;
Forward! forward!
Happy faces round us
On this day so fair.

Sing aloud with joy,
Raise a song of gladness all along the way;
Forward! forward!
On this day so fair.

2 Forward! forward!
Lift each voice in praising,
Forward! forward!
In a carol gay;
Forward! forward!
Loud the chorus rising
On this happy day. [Refrain]

3 Forward! forward!
Friends and scholars meeting,
Forward! forward!
Every girl and boy,
Forward! forward!
Join the tuneful meeting
On this day of joy. [Refrain]
