Bassa High School ODE.

 

TURRIS LUCIS, O B.H.S. DEAR
BENIGHTED ROUND THY EFFULGENCE

DARKNESS FROM US MUST EVER FLEE
BY THY RADIANCE RELEASE US NOW
THAT WE THY PRAISE MAY EVER SING
TURRIS LUCIS, O TOWER OF LIGHT,
THAT WE THY PRAISE THY PRAISE MAY EVER SING

 

THOUGH SEASONS CHANGE AND YEARS DECLINE, MAY THY LUSTER NEVER

FAILING, THROUGH THE SWIFT YEARS OUR JOURNEY ENDS

TO WAKE THE SLEEPING HORDES WHO STILL

TILL UTTER DARKNESS BLINDLY STRAY

TILL THEY LIKE US THY JOY BEHOLD
 TURRIS LUCIS, OH TOWER OF LIGHT
THAT WE THY PRAISE, THY PRAISE MAY EVER SING

 

 

TO THEE O BHS MOTHER DEAR, UNFLINCHING LOYALTY WE PLEDGE
THROUGH THE SWIFT YEARS OUR JOURNEY ENDS AND TO THE
BOUNDLESS WORLD WE GO
VALOR AND GLEE SHELL SWELL OUR HEARTS WHEN'ER THY
DEAR NAME WE RECALL TURRIS LUCIS O TOWER OF LIGHT
IN YOUTH OF AGE THY PRAISE WE’LL EVER SING
