THE SCHOOL SONG

The School Song

The battle for life is the sternest strife,
The boy becomes the man;
Here we are learning the lessons of life,
Just do the best you can.
Sing, boys, sing, with a lilt and a swing,
The fame of Saint Joseph’s School;
In chorus clear let your voices ring,
God Bless the dear old School.

Our Holy Faith goes deep in the past,
Grip hard that anchor strong;
In sun and in storm, from first to last,
We shall never go far wrong.
Sing, boys, sing, with a lilt and a swing,
The fame of Saint Joseph’s School;
In chorus clear let your voices ring,
God Bless the dear old School.

Then work, boys work, no duty shirk,
Soon come the test to all;
Shun the sins that in darkness lurk,
Stand fast and meet the call;
Sing, boys, sing, with a lilt and a swing,
The fame of Saint Joseph’s School;
In chorus clear let your voices ring,
God Bless the dear old School.

Be true be brave, to the weak be kind,
That’s the spirit that makes the man;
And when we leave the School behind,
We’ll be proud of St: Joseph’s clan.
Sing, boys, sing, with a lilt and a swing,
The fame of Saint Joseph’s School;
In chorus clear let your voices ring,
God Bless the dear old School.
