REUNION UPDATE:

From Lynn Walker Brothers ('65) of VA - 04/01/20, 12:57 PM - "55-Year Class Reunion for the Class of 1965":

March 31, 2020

Dear Classmates,

Due to the current situation with the coronavirus, it is necessary to cancel our 55-Year Class Reunion.

We plan on rescheduling this event in the fall. We will keep you posted.

I heard this quote today which seemed so appropriate for the time,“What you focus on, you create more of,” so instead of focusing on the negative, find positive ways of dealing with the anxiety created by this virus, that we are all experiencing, and stay safe. Hope to see everyone in the fall.

Your Reunion Committee

   QUITE UNDERSTANDABLE! Thank you so much, Lynn!

"Is there another door I could use?"

The Holy City

Text by Frederick E. Weatherly, 1892
(1849-1929)

Music by
Michael Maybrick - a.k.a. Stephen Adams
(31 Jan 1841 - 26 Aug 1913)


 Last night I lay a-sleeping, there came a dream so fair,
I stood in old Jerusalem beside the temple there.
I heard the children singing and ever as they sang,
Me thought the voice of angels from heaven in answer rang.
Me thought the voice of angels from heaven in answer rang.

Refrain
Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Lift up your gates and sing,
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to your King!

And then me thought my dream was changed, the streets no longer rang,
Hushed were the glad Hosannas the little children sang.
The sun grew dark with mystery, the morn was cold and chill,
As the shadow of a cross arose upon a lonely hill.
As the shadow of a cross arose upon a lonely hill.

Refrain
Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Lift up your gates and sing,
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to your King!

And once again the scene was changed; new earth there seemed to be;
I saw the Holy City beside the tideless sea;
The light of God was on its streets, the gates were open wide,
And all who would might enter and no one was denied.
No need of moon or stars by night, or sun to shine by day;
It was the new Jerusalem that would not pass away.
It was the new Jerusalem that would not pass away.

Refrain
Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Lift up your gates and sing,
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to your King!
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to your King!
