The meetings and greetings we hail with joy, But partings make sad the way; So we put off farewells as long as we can, And good-byes we dread to say. But good-bye just means God bless you, and that's what I'm saying to you,- God bless you , my boy, God bless you, my girl, And guide you in all that you do. May the lessons you've learned in your school days here Be such that shall help you to grow To manhood and womanhood brave and strong To meet all life's storms as they blow. By the best of success may your efforts be crowned, Rich blessings to yours to the end; And each day, I pray you, wherever you are Remember your teacher and friend.
