Representative Text

1 Only a parting word,
Then we must go;
When we shall meet again,
Ah, who can know?

Kindly remember us,
When we depart,
Hide us to bloom again,
Deep in your heart.

2 Here may the dew of love,
Tenderly fall;
God bless our Sabbath School,
God bless you all. [Chorus]

3 Fain would we linger yet,
Happy with you,
Yet must we haste away,
Teachers, adieu. [Chorus]
