It’s DANA. Rhymes with Banana.

Hail Dana

While yet our land was wilderness
And sturdy pilgrim reared
With brawny arm his lowly home,
A flow’r divine appeared:
O hail, fair Dana, hail to thee!
Our song to thee we sing:
May always we thy name revere
While truth to us be dear.

To all who would thy truths embrace
Thy message true impart;
Be thou their guiding star throughout
To virtue lead each heart.
O hail, fair Dana, hail to thee!
Thy children guide aright;
May they in faith and hope and love,
Praise Him who dwells above.

And when we launch our little barks
On Destiny’s deep sea,
As ivies to thy walls do cling,
Our hearts will cling to thee.
O hail, fair Dana, hail to thee!
Though time thy walls may claim
Thy spirit live another throng
Rise up and sing our song.

    Thank you for the words to the Dana Viking school song. After the shocking news of Dana’s closing, I’ve been sifting through my memory bank remembering times at the campus and the schools presence in the community. I thought about the song and wondered what the words were. How appropriate they are for this day. I remember the day Old Main burned and what a loss that was. It’s hard to think of the campus closed and vacant. How sad.
