Anthem of S. Thomas’ College, Mt. Lavinia
(by Edmund de Livera)

Thomians young, and Thomians old
Thomians staunch and true!
Rally round the college flag,
The Blue, the Black and Blue
To your Alma Mater sing,
Thomians near and far
Loudly let the echoes ring,
For all we have and are,
Esto Perpetua
Esto Perpetua
Esto Perpetua
The Blue, Black and Blue
for ever

Like the serpent keen and wise,
Harmless as the dove,
By the cross we’re knit in one
Holy bond of love
Loyal to our Church and King*
Both in peace and war,
To the College we will sing
For all we have and are

Chorus

In the field of intellect
Many a prize we’ve won,
And upon the field of sport
Thomians yield to none
Be it work, or be it play,
We will do and dare
To the College therefore sing
For all we have and are

Chorus

We rejoice in victory,
When our foes we beat,
We have learnt, when fortune frowns
How to take defeat,
All unfriendly rivalry
From our lives we bar
To the College therefore sing
For all we have and are

Chorus

When into the world we go
For our life’s career,
As the call of duty sounds,
We will answer clear
Onward to the goal we press,
Guided by our star
To the College therefore sing
For all we have and are
Esto Perpetua - Pro Deo et Ecclesia
Be Thou forever for God & His Church
