All through St. Joseph’s a voice is resounding;
Promptly respond to your duty’s clear call;
Harken you all for the trumpet is sounding;
Your Mater’s proclaiming her watchword to all.
“Labour and Virtute” your motto still bearing,
Forward with courage in ways that are just;
True to your standard be doing and daring,
As faithful Josephians in Heaven you trust.
Onward and upward in life’s earnest battle,
Joyously bearing the brunt of the fight,
Nobly forgiving for aught that may pain you,
And bravely defending the cause of the right.
Lift up your hearts for a kingdom awaits you,
Honour and Virtue with courage defend;
Serve Him in life, who in death can reward you,
And vow to be faithful and true to the end.
Forward, her children dear,
Ever with hearts sincere,
Render with joy to your Mater her due;
All that is vile reject;
Heaven will e’er protect,
Sons of St. Joseph’s valiant and true.
