Hail! Hail! the name we own Frederick James Rowe


Hail! Hail! the name we own;
Hail! to the giver;
Blessing and bright renown;
Be his forever!

Verse 1:

All his martial deeds may die,
Lasting still his charity;
This his laurel blooms for aye,
Dead he lives in us today.
This then our song shall be,
As we chant his eulogy -
"May our Founder's name endure;
Ever spotless, ever pure."

Chorus

Verse 2:

Faithful may we ever be
Followers of his constancy;
Firm of hand against the foe
Soft of heart to succour woe.
This then our song shall be,
As we chant his eulogy -
"May our Founder's name endure
Ever spotless ever pure!"

Chorus
