SCHOOL HYMN: PERSEVERANDO VINCIMUS

 

Chorus:

 

Perseverando Vincimus

Who perseveres o’ercomes.

Thus with hearts rejoicing now we sing,

We are what you have wrought

Your treasures we’ve laid by,

‘Tis knowledge, truth and light you brought,

Till justice and right prevail

And all the world is made a better place,

We’ll persevere, Dear Uitenhage High.

 

Verse 1:

 

To you our dearest school,

Our thanks to thee,

For minds like polished jewel,

For hearts so free,

We’ll fight until we die

Dear Uitenhage High.

 

Chorus:

 

Verse 2:

 

May we e’er cherish,

Mem’ries of you,

Lives without blemish,

To lofty ideals true.

Let freedom be our cry,

Dear Uitenhage High.

 

Chorus:

 

Verse 3:

 

For causes just we strive;

To God we pray,

His values keep alive,

At work or play,

We’ll laud you to the sky,

Dear Uitenhage High.

 

Chorus:
