Hymn and March

The College Hymn shall be adopted by all units of the JBLF System to be sung during official functions.

 

THE UNIVERSITY HYMN

We look back to the humble begining

Of John B. Lacson Maritime University

Whose Founder's dream is that of providing

Brave sailors and leaders of the nation.

Oh John B. of our hearts

Our hope is in your sound philosophy

Time - tested values, let the youth uphold

To serve, and honor God and country.

Our ships may sailed over the ocean

The tide may sweep us, to shore and sea

Around the globe to lands and nations

Your flag unfurl, Oh JBLFMU

Around the globe to lands and nations

Your flag unfurl, Oh JBLFMU.

To serve Lord God and Country.

Oh! Dear Alma Mater

We salute you for the values

We are now great sailors
