It has come, the end of another era,
We can only look in the mirror;
To reflect and find.
To cherish these moments
In history, in time.

It has come, the beginning of another’s destiny,
To stand on the highest stage in our land;
It has come, for another to make their imprint,
To declare where our country will stand
In history, in time.

It has come for another to lay the plans of his mind.
