Alma Mater: Hail to Thee, L.H.S.

With united hearts we praise thee; all our loyalty is thine,

May thy name forever waken an affection deep and true,
May we Lead, Honor and Serve thee; LHS the White and Blue.

The original words were written by Danny Stinson of the Class of 1957.  Originally set to the tune "Far Above Cayuga's Waters" the Alma Mater of Cornell University.  The words were adapted and edited to a single verse version with a new melody in 2015.

WE HAIL THEE, L.H.S.

In the town of Elms and Roses there's a spot that ever calls,
Where among the the hills enfolded stand our Alma Mater's Walls.

Where the trees life high their branches, to the whisp'ring southern breeze.
There our LHS is calling to our hearts’ fond memories.

With united hearts we praise thee; all our loyalty is thine.
And we hail the Alma Mater, may thy light forever shine.

May it brighter grow and brighter,and with deep affection true.
May thoughts of thee forever, linger round the White and Blue.

May thy fame in all the nation through they sons and daughters grow,
May they name forever waken in our hearts a tender glow.

May thy counsel and thy spirit, ever more thy children bless,
and our own shall be thine honor; Hail to Thee, Dear L.H.S.!
