Decked with shady palms and trees
Fringed with rich mahoganies,
There beneath a glowing sky,
St. John’s uprears her crest on high.
Praise St. John your patron saint.
And lest in deed or word you taint
Your Alma Mater’s ancient name,
Johnians! Always play the game.
Christian lore she gives her boys,
Ever prizing heavenly joys,
Her highest pride a noble mind,
Her greatest joy a heart that’s kind.
“In the darkness shines the light”
Johnians! With your torches bright,
Chase the gloom of night away,
Shed thro’ the world eternal day.
