The origin of this song are unknown, but the melody has been attributed to Mozart.
1. Friendship true is a golden token
Friendship true is a chain unbroken,
Shaped to last a lifetime long,
Peace and mercy its gold refining,
Love and honor the links combining,
Links forever firm and strong,
Linda that bind forever, ever firm and strong.
2. East nor west, nor the seas shall sever
Friendship fixed in the heart forever
Mountain peaks, nor plains that roll.
Then let patience and sweet forgiving,
Then let goodness and kindly living
Be our watchword, be our goal,
Be our watchword, be our steady hope and goal.
