College Hymn

In the Name of Our Redeemer

In the name of our Redeemer,
With our hope in Christ our Lord,
Bold we bring our prayers and praises
Trusting firmly in his word,
Strongly claim his promised mercy
Chosen by forgiving grace.
In his cross and on his credit,
Hope and confidence we place.

Be the wisdom in our learning;
Guide us in our youth and age.
May we, in our search for knowledge,
See your truth on every page.
Be our light in lonely shadows
And when doubts confuse the soul,
Help us take our restless burdens
To the peace who makes us whole.

Saviour, bless our school's endeavour;
Be the badge we wear with pride.
Keep our purpose clear and steady,
Christ, the captain of our side!
May we serve, as you have served us,
Won the battle, paid the price.
Onward, then, in freedom marching
To redeemed eternal life!
