School Song – Translation

In dutiful song let us sing the praises of our school,
and dutifully let us make mention of our founders,
to whom we owe so many gifts of the Muses.
Let us bestow praise upon John, let us celebrate in song the praise of Joan.
May the Crypt School live on, may it live on for ever !

Our house stands and grows throughout the years,
and it becomes stronger as it grows older,
blossoming afresh with cheerful offspring while the ages glide on.
It is strong in abundance of ancient faith, it is strong in the brightness of youthful hope.
May the Crypt School live on, may it live on for ever !

How many men have gone forth from here who
have wrought famous deeds, men truly devoted to
God and leaders among their contemporaries !
How many souls unknown to fame have gone forth,
whose hearts were set on honourable things !
May the Crypt School live on, may it live on for ever !

Alma mater, ever prosper in learning and work and
rejoice in the mutual love of those who take their pleasure here.
Joyfully behold our play and lead us upward to the stars.
Live on Crypt School, live on for ever !
