The St. Luke’s Alma Mater

St. Luke’s Alma Mater from St. Luke’s Sentinel on Vimeo.

The Alma Mater of St. Luke’s School, as written by former headmaster Dr. Joseph R. Kidd in 1942. The lyrics are as follows:

Hail to thee, our Alma Mater, hear our voices clear.
Singing of thy glory and the name we hold so dear.
Days may come, and days may go, yet hearts will beat for thee.
To St. Luke’s, our Alma Mater loyal be.

In the morning of our lives we heed thy kindly call,
working, playing, thinking, praying in this hallowed hall.
As the years pass by, those days return in memory.
Hail, St. Luke’s, our Alma Mater, hail to thee.

Note that this arrangement, based on Dr. Kidd’s original melody, is the work of Music Department Chair, Mr. Griffa, and Mr. Leinbach.

This film was created by Sentinel Staff Writer Josie Williams ’15 and Editor-in-Chief Sebastian Bates ’14 as part of a collaboration with the Office of Alumni Relations and the 2013-14 Student Government.
