School Anthems

Play the School Anthem

School Song

School Anthem in 1893

What joy to sing Lord Buddha’s praise, to chant his blessed. name : Like
Tri-Rat-Na to make our days, Bright symbols of his fame.

May Devas holy who protect
And guard our lovely land,
Help us all baseness to reject,
Strong, pure and true to stand.

Lanka! Dear land of life and light
‘Neath Britain’s guardian care,
In Empire’s fold and Buddha’s might
Reach on to greatness rare.

Marie Musaeus, who did’st give
Our school, its honoured name,
Help us to teach, while yet we live,
That Truth is highest fame.

O blest be Lanka, realm of flowers,
Of jewels and temples fair:
And blest be all our girlhood’s hours,
Unclouded free from care.
