College Song  

Pearl of the Indian Ocean, Isle of beauty rare,

Holds our Alma Mater in her tender care,

Snuggled Neath the green hills in a sheltered vale,

Where the fronded palms in spicy breezes wave.



Educate for service is our motto true,

We will serve both God and man as well as you.


To prepare for service, we have gathered here,

In the name of Jesus, our Redeemer dear,

To the right unflinching, we will ever stand,

Till the world has heard the love of God to man.


Lakpahana ever, be a beacon bright,

Set upon the hills to light the nations’ night,

We, Thy students ever, shall defend Thy name,

Till our bless Savior, in the clouds we claim.



Lakpahana is a Sri Lanka government registered school and is accredited by the Seventh-Day Adventist Accrediting Association.
