GUEST,Marion Tune Req: Farewell Song (Quarrier homes, Scotland) (4) Tune Req: Farewell Song (Quarrier homes, Scotland) 26 Apr 16

Hello folks. I'm looking for a song associated with the Quarrier orphanages in Scotland. Apparently it was the custom for the children to sing this when a group of children was being departing for Canada (1869-1939).

These are the lyrics I know:

Don't forget the orphan homes of Scotland,
Don't forget the dear friends here;
Don't forget that Jesus Christ your Saviour
Goes with thee to Canada.
And remember we're still a-praying
That your life will be good and true,
And that you may find a blessing
In the land you're going to.

(It's possible that there are other verses, which would be great to know too, but what I'm here to look for is the melody.)

Thanks, Marion
