Class of 1959

We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long ago life at our Alma Mater's, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Love Phillips ~

Dear Alma Mater

Dear Alma Mater, we bid thee good-by
Leaving your portals brings
forth a sign ~
Our hearts are yours through the
long years to be
We'll still belong to thee.
Teachers of childhood who moulded
our life
Giving us weapons to conquer in strife.
When we have started our journey so long
Our hearts will sing this song.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chorus:
Loved Alma Mater, we're thine until
forsaken
Thou our inspiration till from this
earth we're taken.
Ah! How our hearts beat with rapture
anew,
As your dear outlines again meet our
view,
Sing, then O classmates, raise
voices on high.
Our Alma Mater, long may she be loved;
Echoes of praises ring out to the sky,
Wafted to heav'n above.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dearest of High Schools, our joy and
our crown,
By golden strands to thee we are bound.
One strand is glory, the other is love,
Lifting our hearts above.
Now we are singing as onward we go
Songs of courage at thy command
Great are the gifts which you did
bestow
On us with lavish hands.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
