The Carmen

(words by the Rev. E.M. Young, music by L.N. Parker)

Olim fuit monachorum

Schola nostra sedes;

Puer regius illorum

Fecit nos heredes;

Hoc in posteros amoris

Grande dedit signum;

Sonet ergo Fundatoris

Nomen laude dignum!

Vivat Rex Eduardus Sextus!

Vivat!

Ergo dum verenda mole

Cana perstat aedes,

Dum recenti gaudet prole

Monachorum sedes,

Stimulet certamen ludi,

Suadeat laboris,

In sigillo sculptum rudi

Nomen Fundatoris,

Vivat Rex Eduardus Sextus!

Vivat!
