Salvete cives nostri
Amici hospites:
Salvete vos alumni,
Salvete praesides!
Tu dives urbs superbo
Innixa flumini,
Sic oneratas auro
Feras naves mari.

Ut hodie nobiscum,
Gaudes gaudentibus,
Ut mater alumnorum,
Rides ridentibus.
Stat nostra sedes alta
asylum Paladis,
Latura Pacis artes,
Pacis discipulis.

Vos ergo puellarum
Chori tenelluli,
Grates agatis almas
Puella Paladi,
Nec segniore cantu
Chorus respondeat
Virilis alumnorum
"Haec Aula floreat!"

Quis dulciores horas
Vixisse se dicet
Quam quas una discendo
Vixisse nos licet?
Quis Matris almioris
Proles amantior?
Sit ergo nostrae matri
Fides, Salus, Amor!
