Not now but then
We began the voyage
Then we began the race
Then, we hoped to see now

Alumna! Alumnus!
Then, we were students,
Then, we were coursemates
Then, we were contemporaries

Now, we are friends
Now, we are colleagues
Now, we are associates
Now, we are professionals

Graduation effected departure
Reality surely became inescapable
Journey to greatness via various ways
Thousands are now striving in the Diaspora

Now, it’s time
To honour the past
To celebrate ourselves
To peep into the future

Let’s believe in unity
Let’s fortify the union
Let’s our impact be felt
Let’s not forget the past
