FINALE

"Now Is The Hour"

 

Senior Song of Class Night '54

 

Now Is the Hour

When we must say goodbye,

Soon we'll be sailing

Far across the sea.

While we're away

Oh,  please remember us,

When we return

We'll find you waiting here.

We’ll meet again

Don't know where or when

We'll meet again we know

On some sunny day.

Keep smiling through

Just like we used to do,

Till the blue skies

Chase all the dark clouds away,

Please say "Hello"

To all the friends we know,

For from our hearts

This place will never, ever go.

For Now Is The Hour

When we must say goodbye,

Soon we'll be sailing

Far across the sea.

While we're away

Oh please remember us,

When we return

We’ll find you waiting here.
