The best of the chorus group

During our schooling,we were trained to sing chorus songs in many languages like english,hindi,bengali,assamese and telugu.This is one of those songs which i would like to share with the  blogging community,since it happens to be one of my favourites :)

Song one:

Thank you for giving me this morning

Thank you for everyday thats new

Thank you that i can know my worries,can be cost on you!

Thank you for all my friends and brothers,Thankyou for all the men that live

Thankyou for even greatest enemies so i can forgive!

Thank you god your love is boundless,Thankyou that i am full of you

Thankyou for music,light and gladness

Thankfull as i do.....

There was another song which was adapted as our school song,since it exactly fits into our school moto!

Song two (School song)

Also famously known  as the VITAI LAMPADA ("They Pass On The Torch of Life"),through out canada and Great britain,this song was written by Sir Henry Newbolt during the late eighteen hundreds.

There's a breathless hush in the Close to-night --

Ten to make and the match to win --

A bumping pitch and a blinding light,
An hour to play and the last man in.
And it's not for the sake of a ribboned coat,
Or the selfish hope of a season's fame,
But his Captain's hand on his shoulder smote --
'Play up! play up! and play the game!'

This is the word that year by year,
While in her place the School is set,
Every one of her sons must hear,
And none that hears it dare forget.
This they all with a joyful mind
Bear through life like a torch in flame,
And falling fling to the host behind --
'Play up! play up! and play the game!'
