Ye valiant youth arise, and join
life’s glorious fray,
With God as guide, he will strength
provide to conquer day to day.
In hallowed hall or field, we’ll
strive but never yield;
We will fight with our might,
undefeated be the conflict mild or heated:
Brave and strong, shunning wrong
we will march along
To the future’s brighter ray.
With loyalty and pride, we’ll
shield our noble name,
Whatever assail it shall ne’er
prevail, we’ll conquer just the same:
With banner high, unfurled, a
symbol to the world
Of the zeal that we feel in
pursuing what we’re doing, ever viewing
The bright crest of the best
That will crown our quest,
And fan Ardenne’s glorious flame.
