School Song

Arise, All Sons of the Mountaineer!

1.  Arise all Sons of the Mountaineer
     Sing praises to the Lord
     And shout for joy with one accord
     All Boys from far and near
     Remember now the glorious days 
     At Oke-Are’s gates 
     Whence we came and first sang our Lays
     Deo et Patriae.

2. Praise God that patriots of old 
    To work did put their hand 
    And for the love of Fatherland 
    Their mites did not withold 
    Brothers, sisters, now justify 
    The talking drums of old 
    The hope of those who laboured long 
    Deo et Patriae . 

3.  Illustrious sons who rose to fame 
     The scions of their days 
     Brought glory and unfading praise 
     To Alma Mater’s name 
     With these in thankful voice we sing 
     Our hymn of jubilee 
     Raise upon high our joyful glee 
     Deo et Patriae.
