Representative Text

1 We are young, We are young,

Like the dew, Like the dew,
Vanishing from view.
Swiftly fly the whirling years,
Like the planets in their spheres,
Hastening on, Hastening on,
Till our life is gone.

2 Here we come, Here we come,
Gladly from each cheerful home,
Here may we, Here may we,
Good and patient be.
May we learn with joy and cheer,
Learn to make us everywhere,
Good and true, Good and true,
All our lifelong through.
