1. 0 loved by God 0 purest dove who soared to blissful heights above; Look down on us today who sing your glorious praises to the king. Refrain: 0 pure and blest Scholastica, 0 pray to the Father above that we may learn to walk in truth, And ever seek the ways of love. 2. From earthly joys you turned away to tread your holy brother sway And happiness without alloy you found in serving God with joy! 3. You learned to know love's mighty sway When Benedict declined to stay To talk of heaven through the night Your spouse refused not this delight. 4. And when life's winter passed away above the clouds you winged your way and there with all the saints you sing The joy of love's eternal spring.
Come loyal Benedictine children O come let us sing Our voices raise with youthful hearts, With youthful hearts aflame. In praise of St. Scholastica Let these walls ring in accents bright Let these halls ring in accents bright Bring out her glory and her name, O' glorious St. Scholastica, O dove who flew to heaven on wings of love! Strengthen our wings, as we go on our way. Watch o’er our flight for we are prone to stray, We stand here and salute thee, Alma Mater, Alma Mater We carry forth your vision and your aims, Your noble aims No matter where we roam your spirit ever Alive within our hearts your name proclaims.

HYMN TO ST. BENEDICT
O blessed by God, Saint Benedict, Let sadness not our hearts afflict. As we our praise and tribute bring Thy saintly life and glories sing. Refrain: St. Benedictine to Thee we turn. The secrets of God's grace to learn Oh, guide us by Thy wise decrees that God alone we seek to please. God taught Thee to reject the wiles of sinful words which men beguile Then like a star that glitters bright God made of Thee a holy light. (Refrain) In wondrous ray of God's own light The world appeared before thy sight Then Thou the emptiness did see of earthly things that what e'er they be. (Refrain) Praise honor glory be to Thee. Most blessed, holy Trinity Thy love unbounded did impart to Benedict's enraptured heart.
