School Anthem - Lyrics

God bless your children gathered here,
St. Stephen//'s family;
Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh
United we will be.

Love and honesty our aim
To help the poor and maimed
Planting the seeds of faith and Good deeds of
St. Stephen//'s glory and fame.

Semper Sursum, let the flag unfold;
Stand firm, stand true,
//'Neath the green, maroon, blue and gold

God bless our loving founder,
He had the faith to dream;
He taught us to face our every fear,
With courage and esteem.

To love and respect our teachers too,
Be confident and bold;
The morals and values
We//'re taught at St. Stephen//'s
Close to our hearts we//'ll hold

Semper Sursum, let the flag unfold;
Stand firm, stand true
//'Neath the green, maroon, blue and gold

Prayer 1

Oh my God
Help us this day
To study hard
When it is time to study
To play fair
When it is time to play
To obey promptly
At all times
To be kind to all
And to do everything
You want me to do
And do it well
This day, and forever more

Prayer 2

God our loving father
You have given us
The unit
Of a family
May our families
Be guided by you
May they grow
In your love, peace and joy
Help us to stay together
In joy and in sorrow.
Teach us to see you
In the members of our family
When they are distressed or troubled
Make us humble
To carry out our duties in a dignified manner
May we grow
To love one another
And forgive
Each other//'s faults
As you forgive
Our faults
Help us to take
Whatever you give
And to give
Whatever you take
With a big smile
Be with us
And protect us
Now and always
