St. Cecilia Bold and Fearless

This school-song was written by Dr. Thomas Henderson & Ms. Triona Henderson (ref) and is used in a secondary school in the Commonwealth of Dominica in the Caribbean.

Despite the number of schools and parishes named after St Cecilia, the patron of music, there are very few folk-genre songs about her - this is an exception.

Lyrics

Saint whose faith in God divine.
Frustrated foes put them to shame;
Maiden who for love of the Lord
Chose to die but not renounce his name.

Chorus:
St. Cecilia, bold and fearless,
Sage of music, saint of love.
Make us strong in body and in spirit,
St. Cecilia’s house will always be on top.

Valiant maiden, martyred virgin,
Be our guide, our inspiration,
With song and music, truth and honour,
We’ll sing your virtues and recall your pain.

Lead us onward, St. Cecilia
To be diligent and never shirk.
Give us courage and give us wisdom
To lead in sports and academic work.
