School Song and Hymn

School Song

 (Music and Lyrics by VIVIAN QUEK)

 

In these sound walls a goodly learning frame

Who here abide true kindliness impart

With steadfast love, devotion firm inflame

The fire that waits in every heart.

 

For Charity, Patience,

Devotion let's be known.

These qualities St. Margaret's shown

On which our school has grown.

 

We learn to serve our God, our State, our School

In service free for neighbour, home and friend

So may we keep the all embracing rule

In care for all our lives to spend.

 

When life brings pain, when trials us defy

Our faith, our hope, our discipline require

Us to withstand respond with spirit high

St. Margaret's shall again inspire.
 



School Hymn

 

Our Father, by whose servants

Our school was built of old

Whose hand hath crowned her children

With blessings manifold

For Thine unfailing mercies

Far strewn along our way

With all who passed before us

We praise Thy name today.

 

The changeful years unresting

Their silent course have sped

New comrades ever bringing

In comrades' steps to tread

And some are long forgotten

Long spent their hopes and fears

Safe rest they in Thy keeping

Who changest not with years.

 

They reap not where they laboured

We reap what they have sown

Our harvest may be garnered

By ages yet unknown

The days of old have dowered us

With gifts beyond all praise

Our Father, make us faithful

To serve and love always.

 

Before us and beside us

Still holden in Thy hand

A cloud of unseen witness

Our elder comrades stand

One family unbroken

We join with one acclaim

One heart one voice uplifting

To glorify Thy name.
