College Prayer

May God give blessings on all Whose lives build our school

Both parent and child, Both young and old, Both wisdom and youth

Stranger and friend, Both male and female

Protestant, Catholic and others, Both visionary and builders of the vision

With the eye of the weaver, You have chosen us

Such different threads, To be gathered into unity

So that the world might be changed

Priere du College (French)

Dieu benisse tous eux, Dont les vies construisent notre college

Les parents et les enfants, Les jeunes et les vieux, La sagesse et la jeunesse

Les inconnus et les amis, Les garcons et les filles

Les Protestants, les Catholiques et tous les autres

Tous visionnaires construisant la vision, Avec l’oeil du tisserand

Tu nous as choisis, Des fils si differents

Pour nous reunir dans l’unite, Pour que le monde puisse changer

Oracion del instituto (Spanish)

Dios bendiga a todos aquellos, Cuyas vidas conforman nuestro colegio

A padres e hijos, A pequenos y mayors

A la sabiduria y a la juventud, Al desconocido o al amigo, A hombres y mujeres

A Protestantes, Catolicos o de otros religions,

A visionarios y creadores de visions de futuro

Con ojo de tejedor, Nos has elegido

A tan dispares hilos, Para entrelazarlos en la unidad

Y que pueda asi cambiar el mundo
