The School Song (Past and Present)

PRESENT SCHOOL SONG

We want to build on a firm foundation
On the Rock of Integrity.
We want to set a good example
Of truth and loyalty
If we can meet success or failure,
With courage and humble grace;
And work with zeal, for our ideal
In the world to take our place.
We want to build on a firm foundation
To keep life’s golden rule,
For Christ the great Architect made the Plan
We follow in Annie Walsh School!
(Dr Tina Aitkins)

 

PAST SCHOOL SONG

Let us thank the Christ for all who did their duty,

Famous men of old and great of heart in fight:

Who fought their way and laboured for their duty,

And strove to make our Annie Walsh

A happy, lovely Annie Walsh,

Happy in His praise and lovely in His light.

Now they thank the Christ, who called them to be captains:

Now they sing His praise in ever-lasting light:

And still they pray, they pray the Lord today

That He would make our Annie Walsh

A happy, lovely Annie Walsh,

Happy in His praise and lovely in His light.

Let us pray the Christ that He would make us soldiers

Truer in His ways and braver in His fight:

That we, as they, may loyally obey,

And help to make our Annie Walsh

A happy, lovely Annie Walsh,

Happy in His praise and lovely in His light.

(J M C Crum)
