Lyrics and Music by Dean Joseph William Hollis

All Hail! Fair New Era forever dear to me
We are proud to sing with cheers and glory
To thee our hopes and dreams run crystal clear
Our faith beneath thy wings will forever be
All Hail! Fair New Era forever dear to me

Like the rising sun within thy seal
We’ll shine and light the world with brilliancy
The Lord’s command we’ll obey with zeal
With His grace to Him, all our victory

Hail to thee beloved alma mater
With pride we’ll uphold thy name forever
With honor, we’ll march beneath thy banner
Thy golden flame we’ll always remember

We pledge to thee eternal loyalty
We will win for thee more fame and glory
With fervent prayers to the Almighty
We’ll be united ‘till eternity

(Repeat Refrain)

Glory to God the Lord Almighty
And selfless service to humanity
