Farewell to Northshield


Lyrics: Master Alexander de Seaton            
Music: Farewell Johnny Miner
            by Ed Pickford




Chorus:
Farewell from the Midlands, Oaken too.
Pentamere gives farewell to you.
Constellation bids adieu.
Farewell to you, Northshield.
Verses:
Northshield Griffen, you were born
To outshine the rising dawn.
Now you've grown and now you're gone.
Farewell to you, Northshield.

A right good guide, the Compass Rose,
From where you've been to where you go.
You'll blaza a trail for all to know.
Farewell to you Northshield.

Golden Griffen, flying high,
Silhouette on a starry sky,
You'll excel in all you try.
Farewell to you Northshield.

The light that shines - Illuminare.
The gen'rous hand is Ministrare.
And that which guides is called Duchare.
Heed them well, O Northshield.
