A wisp from sky’s resplendent wall
Breathes hope, brings light as it does fall
Steers on the anvil so the gear
To weave the song CHMSC dear

CHMSC thou art hope and joy
Science, Technology ye do deploy
To youth with fervor burning still
Thou quench the thirst for knowledge and skills

O hail! We pledge our loyalty
And all the toil for thy glory be
To the skies that lend the noble blue

O Hail! When pioneering days will end
And success or stress will sure portend
This song will ring loudly through the sky!
To thank the great Power on high
