THE SCHOOL SONG

 

 

THE SCHOOL SONG

Pass on the torch still brightly gleaming,

Pass on the hopes the earnest dreaming,

To those who follow close at hand,

Pass on the thoughts, the skills, the learning

Pass on the secret in most yearning

That they may build where we have planned

 

Pass on the songs, pass on the laughter;

Pass on the joy that others after,

May tread more lightly on their way,

Pass on the faith, that naught can alter

Pass on the strength lest they should falter,

In hours of stress some future day.

 

Pass on firm determination,

To guide a later generation,

By gentle influence in the home,

Pass on the health, the youth vigour

Pass on the love that can transfigure

The darkest hours that yet may come.

 

‘Pass on the torch’, the cry inspiring,

Unites us here in hopes untiring,

In bonds no future years can sever

We forward press not backward turning,

That this our torch more brightly burning,

May yet pass on and on forever.
