The Teacherís Farewell 444b

Tune: Arranged by Eld. Edmund Dumas, 1858
Alto: Miss Lina McCoy, 1902
Lyrics: Eld. Edmund Dumas, 1858
Meter: Short Meter (6,6,8,6)
Our school now closes out,
And we today must part;
How sad the thought to part with you,
I hope we'll meet again.

Chorus:

O let us meet in heav'n,
The Christian's happy home,
The house above, where all is love,
There'll be no parting there.

(Chorus)

You've been so kind to me,
How can I bear the thought
To part with you, It greives my heart,
Perhaps to meet no more.

(Chorus)

Wherever you may go,
Dear students, think of me,
O pray for me where'er you go,
That we may meet in heav'n.

(Chorus)
