Music by D E PARKER
Lyrics by E BLUNDEN

Bring to our song the thankful soul,
The loving thought, the shining dream;
And let us all as one extol,
Our general and our several theme,
Our School of royal title,
Bring great gladness to her honouring.

Elizabeth a queenly name,
Begins the song and so begun.
Fair be our School’s advance and fame,
And ever new her glory won.
The glory of the wise and good,
And old truth newly understood.

May knowledge from our works increase,
And serve the world and spread the light;
Be ours to share an active peace,
Among ourselves first learned aright;
And from this School let this be shown.
“Twas mine, but was not mine alone.”

Now close the song; and close in full,
Re-echo, “Queen Elizabeth School”.
