SCHOOL ANTHEM

1. Thou art the light, the bright and morning star In whom we ever live and move and are Thou art the key to treasure new and old That turns the toil of every day to gold,
O Holy Child.

2. Thou art the living Bread from God come down To give thyself to men Thou art our crown The bud which blossomed forth from David’s stem Teach us to love thee poor in Bethlehem
O Holy Child.

3. Thou art the lamb of God, oblation made, When by thou mother in the crib first laid, Thou art the king, to whom our loyalty is proved by deeds, Not words of loyalty,
O Holy Child.

4. Thou art the way in which we learn to run With ardour, till thy father’s will be done, Thou art the truth, from proud and wise concealed, In swaddling bands to little ones revealed.
O Holy Child.

5. Thou art the life which God’s abundance gave, Which never saves its self which dies to save, Thou art the vine and we the branches, bear Grapes ripe for sacrifices, Thy cross to share.
O Holy Child.

6. Thou, Alpha – Omega, the first and last In whose eternal love our lives are passed, Thou are the Christ, the living God’s own son Make us with thee, in heart and spirit, one.
O Holy Child.
