1.
We hail thee Ganta Mission 
Our Alma Mater's name.

We proudly sing your praises                                             
For what we've gleaned from thee.
The knowledge and the skills that
You taught us loud and clear -
Are strongly anchored deeply
Within our hearts and minds.

2. We're proud of our foundation,
Forever grateful be;
Your children of tomorrow
     Prepared to lead the way.
     Through many of life's pathways
     We'll blaze the rugged way,
     To make the crooked places
     As straight as they should be.

3.  Now bless your sons and daughters;
     We pledge our loyalty.
     With tributes and our duties 
                 As guardians of your trust.
     When we have gone from these walls
     Committed to your cause,
     Give us the strength to labor
     For all humanity.
