Traditional farewell ballad:
Auld Lang Syne

 Listen to this farewell ballad:



Or listen to this gospel version:

Lyrics:


Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup!
and surely I’ll buy mine!
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

And there’s a hand my trusty friend!
And give us a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

God Be With You Till We Meet Again
Solemn Christian hymn based on the etymology of “good-bye,” which is “God be with ye.”

Footprints In The Sand by Leona Lewis
This song is based on the Footprints in the Sand poem by Mary Stevenson, and is a soulful ballad with some elements of gospel. A very emotional song, and Leona Lewis does great justice to it. The meaning of the song is an affirmation of love or friendship, no matter where we travel in life.
