School Song

By MH | Posted: Monday October 22, 2018

The school song was written by DWM Burn in 1909. Follow up Otago High was selected after a competition to find an appropriate school song that would create a feeling of enthusiastic loyalty to the school.

Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty years ahead

When others shall be singing here where once our voices led

Shall memory rise and call to mind the days that long have sped

As the years go rolling by.

CHORUS

All together raise the chorus

Here in youth with life before us

Still, when years are passing oer us

“Follow up, Otago High"


DESCANT (YEAR 10 only)

Glory, Glory Hallelujah

Glory, Glory Hallelujah

Glory, Glory Hallelujah,

Follow up, Otago High

Deserted are the walls where once our fathers in their day

Began the goodly record in their work and in their play

And ours the task to add to it beneath the turrets grey

As the years go rolling by.


CHORUS

She gave you of her greatness, of her bounties full and free

So guard her fame, revere her name, wherever you may be

Past sons, present sons and future sons to be

As the years go rolling by.


CHORUS
