You are here

He above head my prayers and answered my calls
Never to return to Nudgee again
No matter wherever I go or wherever I roamed
My roots to me will always be
That homeward bound sown on Nudgee ground

I still will love, Nudgee’s forever with me
Still love Sisters, ‘Oh glory to be’
Indeed forgive and forget is what they say
But nay I will always pray
Thank God for time we spent and shared

Sadness, pain and happiness
The good, bad and ugly side of it all
To me Nudgee is always my home
Obedient shall I always be
Then off I went in an automobile
To see a new life which was reserved for me
