Lupang Hinirang
by Julian Felipe

Bayang magiliw,?
Perlas ng Silanganan?
Alab ng puso
Sa dibdib mo’y buhay.

Lupang hinirang?
Duyan ka nang magiting?
Sa manlulupig
Di ka pasisiil.

Sa dagat at bundok,
Sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw,?
May dilag ang tula
At awit sa paglayang minamahal.

Ang kislap ng watawat mo’y?
Tagumpay na nagniningning:?
Ang bituin at araw niya,?
Kailan pa ma’y di magdidilim.

Lupa ng araw, ng luwalhati ‘t pagsinta?
Buhay ay langit sa piling mo;?
Aming ligaya, na pag may mang-aapi,?
Ang mamamatay nang dahil sa iyo.

Panatang Makabayan

Panatang Makabayan
Iniibig ko ang Pilipinas,
Aking lupang sinilangan,
Tahanan ng aking lahi,
Kinukupkop ako at tinutulungan?
Maging malakas, masipag at marangal.?
Dahil mahal ko ang Pilipinas,?
Diringgin ko ang payo
Ng aking magulang,
Susundin ko ang tuntunin ng paaralan,?
Tutuparin ko ang tungkulin
Ng mamamayang makabayan:?
Naglilingkod, nag-aaral at nagdarasal?
Ng buong katapatan
Iaalay ko ang aking buhay,
Pangarap, pagsisikap
Sa bansang Pilipinas

10 Hallmarks of Benedictine Education











College Hymn

Come loyal Benedictine children
O come let us sing
Our voices?raise?with youthful hearts,
With youthful hearts aflame.

In praise of St. Scholastica
Let these walls ring?in?accents bright
Let these halls ring in accents bright
Bring out her glory and her name,

O’ glorious St. Scholastica,
O dove who flew to heaven on wings of love!
Strengthen our wings, as we go on our way.
Watch o’er our flight?for?we are prone to stray,
We stand here and salute?thee, Alma Mater,?
Alma Mater

We carry forth your vision and your aims,
Your noble aims
No matter where we roam your spirit ever
Alive within our hearts your name proclaims.


Lyrics by S.Angeline Arceo,OSB
based?on Centennial Poem (Road to Ithaca) by Florina Castillo

I.????With hearts aflame we thank?thee?God,
For bounteous gifts untold,
Here we stand proud and singing
Praise and gladness now we hold.

Refrain:??Pray’r?and work in love entwining,
?Hundred years of God’s delight
See us now in proud procession
Heralds of peace and joy.

??The Benedictine rule of life

Compels us to respond.
Guided by the Gospel’s might
Walking in the One True Light (Ref.)

III.?? ?We gather here in unity
This legacy bestow
May this be our humble offering.
Then and now and ever more. (Ref.)

Let’s Cheer for St. Scholastica

Let’s cheer for St. Scholastica
Our voices raised in happiest song

Our joy, our pride, our guiding star
Oh, may she live for ages long;
Dear Alma Mater, here we come!
Your daughters true and faithful band
From north and south, from near and from afar.
Proclaim thee first of all, in all, in all the land.

I.? 0 loved by God 0 purest dove who soared to blissful heights above; ?
???? Look down on us today who sing your glorious praises to the king.

Refrain:?0 pure and blest Scholastica,
0 pray to the Father above
that?we may learn to walk in truth,?
And ever seek the ways of love.

II.? From earthly joys you turned away?
?????to?tread your holy brother sway?
???? And happiness without alloy?
?????you?found in serving God with joy!


III.? You learned to know love’s mighty sway?
???? When Benedict declined to stay
???? To talk of heaven through the night?
???? Your spouse refused not this delight.


IV.? And when life’s winter passed away?
?????above?the clouds you winged your way?
?????and?there with all the saints you sing?
???? The joy of love’s eternal spring.


V.??All praise, honor, glory be to You?
???? Most bless ‘d Holy Trinity
???? Your love unbounded did impart?
?????to?Scholastica’s enraptured heart.

The secrets of God’s grace to learn?
Oh, guide us by Thy wise decrees?
that?God alone we seek to please.

II.??God taught Thee to reject the wiles?
?????of?sinful words which men beguile?
???? Then like a star that glitters bright?
???? God made?of?Thee a holy light.


III.? In wondrous ray of God’s own light?
???? The world appeared before?thy?sight?
?????Then?Thou the emptiness did see
?????of?earthly things that what e’er they be.


IV.? Praise honor glory be to Thee.?
???? Most blessed, holy Trinity?
?????Thy?love unbounded did impart?
?????to?Benedict’s enraptured heart.
