To Our Alma Mater

To thee, our dear old Harnett High,
We’ll sing thy praises.
We’ll ever honor and praise thy sacred shrine.
Ever and ever, we’ll adore thy guidance,
We’ll fight to keep the beacon ,
Of learning bright for thee.

To thee our dear old Harnett High,
We’ll extol thy annals,
Thy blue and gold we shall cherish through life,
As emblems of beauty, of truth and wisdom.
Through learning, thy guiding spirit
Inspires like an unfailing light.

To thee, our dear old Harnett High,
Noblest of alma maters,
Our milestone to knowledge, to truth and precepts high.
Thy banner shall ne’er be furled,
We pledge to keep it heavenward
That fine tradition and high ideals
Will be our work well done.
