Beloved Children of St. Mary’s School (School Anthem – English Translation)
Mother, we the beloved children of Thee, also the children of India
We are glittering stars of the glorious St. Mary’s
Together we play different games in this courtyard
With lots of courage and power we face many difficulties
The ocean of knowledge is flowing that flow tells us these words
The words of friendship the birds are also chirping these words
According to our wish we decide to fly from the earth to the sky
We can achieve success every where with hard work and blessings of Thee.
Mother, we are all depending upon you, you can purify our mind and soul
With your merciful heart shower the blessings upon us.
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. / Lead us not into temptation./ But deliver us from evil. – Amen
