Pro Ecclesia Et Pro Patria: 150 years of Service to God and Country

The School Song                 The Lord's Prayer

Ecclesia et Patria,

We vow again our loyalty

To Mother-church and to our Land

We Jacobeans proudly stand,

Knit by this bond of fealty,

Ecclesia et Patria.

 

Our Church comes first, Ecclesia,

God’s brotherhood of every race,

God’s children of the second birth,

We’ll spread its message o’er the earth.

We’ll raise the Cross in every place,

Ecclesia et Patria.

 

Our land comes next, our Patria,

This land of Ind, where God has cast

Our lot that we with service true

May bring to her some treasures new

To swell the glories of the past;

Ecclesia et Patria.

 

Hail Alma Mater! Hail, all hail!

Unsullied will we bear abroad

The honour of the school we love;

The past, the present, those above

Joined in one comradeship of God;

Ecclesia et Patria.

 

Our Father who art in heaven,

Hallowed be Thy name,

Thy kingdom come,

Thy will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

And forgive us our trespasses

As we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom,

The power and the glory,

For ever, and ever,

AMEN.
