Hark! Sons and Daughters of St. Paul,
Come listen to his call.
O children of this loved school,
The loving nurse of all.
Rejoice in God, do work and play,
Be true from day to day;
Beloved school of mine,
My pains and joys are thine.
My childhood’s early dreams are closely linked with thee;
The hope that heaven brings
Thou dost unfold to me. (2x)
Sweet are the days of childhood,
With friends we love and care;
Those golden years of childhood
Whose sympathy we share,
Do stay and while the hours away,
With us in work and play,
And when we leave our dear old school,
These mem’ries we’ll recall. (2x)
My goal as a Paulinian is this:
to proclaim JESUS CHRIST as the GOOD NEWS
to all in response to the need for TOTAL SALVATION
from materialism, unjust structures,
and apathy through education and care of the sick.
Thus, if life seems rough and the way is dark,
I will remember this goal:
to proclaim Christ at all times like Mary and Paul,
for I believe what Jesus said:
“I AM WITH YOU TILL THE END OF TIME.”
and so each day, as I travel on,
I will remember that I’m a Paulinian
committed to Jesus Christ, my Lord,
to love and serve one another,
till in Him we unite.
