There Are WORDS To It?



After going through three graduations of my own, and those concomitant with 41 years of teaching, I still never knew Pomp and Circumstance had lyrics. I almost quite like it again... or am at least enamored of the words.

Land of Hope and Glory,
Mother of the Free,
How shall we extol thee,
who are born of thee?
-- Arthur Christopher Benson, Song from Pomp and Circumstance by Sir Edward Elgar
