Loyal and true to the school above all schools
Where, through the hours, through the days, and the years,
Always as one we’ve been taught to love its rules,
Ch: Waverley reaching up to the sky;
Her girls will always strive and try;
To keep her banner flying high,
When we leave her portals by and by;
Here in our school, in this citadel of knowledge,
We are taught to excel in all we do.
Guided by those who defend high ideals,
We love our school Alma Mater true!


CH: Praised be forever Jesus and Mary
A hymn of triumph glorious hymn.
Urging us in paths of duty
Lifting us beyond the skies
Where God dwells, and ever loves us,
God loves us, heaven is the prize.
Oh thorny crown of deep and ruddy hue.
O wreath of fairest lilies purest white
Enclosing name that men and angles love.
And shedding rays of wondrous heavenly light.
Device of union, strength and glory.
Close-binding hearts that beat in one great cause
Lead on, we follow wherever you may call us.
Our mighty chant to heaven and Victory soars.

And ask God to strengthen our love and our zeal
To spread His word to the world.

And give up prayer.

and our hearts will be at peace within your love.

Through good and bad, through happy and sad,
Footsteps walk all the way.

The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head.
The stars in sky looked down where He lay,
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

And stay by my side until morning is night.

Close by me forever and love me I pray.
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care,
And take us to heaven to live with Thee there.
