School Song

The school song was written in 1947 by Sr. St. Raphael, Sr. Elizabeth of Portugal and Sr. St. Bertha. Sr. St. Raphael chose the melody of a flower song as the backbone. Sr. St. Bertha, the musician, helped with some modifications and rearrangements while Sr. St. Raphael herself and Sr. Elizabeth of Portugal filled in the words.


St. Clare's School! To you we sing this glad refrain

St. Clare's School! Our hearts with love brim over

Hear! Hear! Hear! Our voices rise in praise

For you we'll make echoes ring

To the mem'ry of these school-days

Faithful forever

Then let us enjoy these bright years

Which ne'er will come again


St. Clare's School! To you we sing this glad refrain

St. Clare's School! Our hearts with love brim over

Hear! Hear! Hear! Our voices rise in praise

St. Clare's School! Al-ma Ma-ter


In your hall we’ve found a noble truth

An ideal that will be strong and lasting

From your youth receive their thanks and their pledge

Giv'n to thee in this our loyal song

For higher things daily let's pray and strive

Through life's frays we'll ever stand and fight

Al-ma Ma-ter we'll e'er keep alive

God's ways you so deeply taught us love


St. Clare's School! To you we sing this glad refrain

St. Clare's School! Our hearts with love brim over

Hear! Hear! Hear! Our voices rise in praise

St. Clare's School! Al-ma Ma-ter


Hear and rev'rent join our pray'r

Father in heaven, guide us we pray Thee

And from temptation keep us this day

Bring all to serve Thee

Bring all to love Thee

Help us we pray Thee to drive sin away

Bring all to serve Thee

Bring all to love Thee

Help us we pray Thee to drive sin away


St. Clare's School! To you we sing this glad refrain

St. Clare's School! Our hearts with love brim over

Hear! Hear! Hear! Our voices rise in praise

For you we'll make echoes ring

To the mem'ry of these school days

Faithful forever

Then let us enjoy these bright years

Which ne'er will come again


Hear! Hear! Hear! Happy voices are singing

Hear! Hear! Hear! Merry voices are singing

St. Clare's School! We'll always keep thine honour fair

Let us sing these words of praise

We acclaim thy name

We acclaim thy name

Lift our voices again

Praise to thee


Dear School!
