“The Class Tree

Grow thou and flourish well,
Ever the story tell of this glad day;
Long may thy branches raise
To heaven our grateful praise;
Waft then on sunlight rays
To God away.

Deep in the earth today,
Safely the roots we lay,
Tree of our love;
Grow thou and flourish long!
Every our grateful song
Shall its glad notes prolong
To God above.

Let music swell the breeze
And ring from all the trees
On this glad day,
Bless thou each student band
O’er all our happy land;
Teach them Thy love’s command
Great God, we pray.
