Words to "Silver Sails on Echo Lake"

Silver Sails on Echo Lake
Will shine throughout the years,
A glow no tide can ever break,
Thru laughter, smiles or tears.
Silver sails beyond the shore,
Will linger on and on,
And drift right thru our lives with you
Tho many years have gone.
Someday soon a magic moon
Will shine down from above,
And there you'll be for us to see
Beside the camp we love.
Silver sails on Echo Lake,
On day will turn to gold,
These memories that keep awake,
Are mine to have and hold.
