For many years old Creston High
Has been our home and friend.
Our teachers all have been most kind
And patient to the end.
Of those who first began with us
Not all are with us still
Some to other fields have gone
One sleeps beneath the hill.
We must not idly linger here.
New heights are seen in view
Our duty is to work, to win,
Find glories ever new.
We entered here with faithful hearts,
We've learned, we've worked, we've
Now let us onward, forward go,
New laurels to attain.
