School Song and Hymn
(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.
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.
