You are great folks of such faith and renown.
You all deserve a nice night on the town.

You've been around for a very long time,
But there are mountains for you still to climb.

Your body is weary, your hair has turned gray,
But there is much wisdom in all that you say.

You've worked very hard for all of your life.
You've been through despair, through sickness
and strife.

Many of you all, have stories to tell.
And not only that, you tell them so well.

You've done many jobs, have raised families.
You've been through hard times, and prayed on
your knees.

When you are speaking we need to give ear.
Your wealth of knowledge we all need to hear.

Thank you for being the people you are.
You've been through so much and you've
travelled so far.

Thank you for laughter, for hope and good cheer.
Thanks for the things that you all hold so
dear.

Thanks for the memories of good times and bad.
Thanks for the lessons of life you've all had.

You've helped us learn how to play and have fun.
You've helped us to think, and to walk and
run.

So all you dear seniors; go and have fun.
You've been our example; your work is done.
