  • I saw the light fade from the sky
    On the wind I heard a sigh
    As the snowflakes cover my fallen brothers
    I will say this last goodbye

    Night is now falling
    So ends this day
    The road is now calling
    And I must away
    Over hill and under tree
    Through lands where never light has shone
    By silver streams that run down to the sea

    Under cloud, beneath the stars
    Over snow one winter's morn
    I turn at last to paths that lead home
    And though where the road then takes me
    I cannot tell
    We came all this way
    But now comes the day
    To bid you farewell

    Many places I have been
    Many sorrows I have seen
    But I don't regret
    Nor will I forget
    All who took the road with me

    Night is now falling
    So ends this day
    The road is now calling
    And I must away
    Over hill and under tree
    Through lands where never light has shone
    By silver streams that run down to the sea

    To these memories I will hold
    With your blessing I will go
    To turn at last to paths that lead home
    And though where the road then takes me
    I cannot tell
    We came all this way
    But now comes the day
    To bid you farewell

    I bid you all a very fond farewell Writer/s: BILLY BOYD, FRANCES ROSEMARY WALSH, HOWARD LESLIE SHORE, PHILIPPA JANE BOYENS
