On Christ the sure foundation, Lord, now we ask your blessing Resolved and proud we stand; As in your care we find
Our past secured by mercies, Our learning and our serving,
Our future in God’s hand. Our fellowship of mind;
They blazed a path most glorious, A light within our nation,
Who served us selflessly; A flicker turned to flame;
And we, the course victorious Excelsior's faith in duty
Must stay relentlessly. Adds lustre to its name
On eagle’s wings still mounting, We work to lift God's children As day succeeds to day; To knowledge, truth and right;
Excelsior swells the chorus; And at the call EXCELSIOR!
YET HIGHER! All the way. We do it with our might.
2. O God of strength and wisdom, Lyrics -Philip G. O'B Robinson
Source of all love and truth; Music- Lloyd Hall
Through childhood days You nurture
And guide us into youth;
In later years, still guiding,
You light the way we go;
We look to you Great Teacher,
For all we need to know.
Time, gifts and all we offer,
Life’s calling to fulfill;
That as we go, EXCELSIOR,
We do God’s sovereign will.
