  • Here's the Alma Mater hymn of San Beda:

    The Bedan Hymn

    Written by Sen. Raul Roco & Benildus Maramba, OSB

    Herald the Bedans coming
    May their fellowship never cease
    Molded by bold, undaunted men
    Of pray'r, work and peace

    Through the carefree days of our childhood
    And the visions of our youth
    You gave us the wisdom of Benedict's soul
    Faith in God and love of the truth

    When we encounter trials and hardships
    We shall give you honor and fame
    For nothing but this, show our loyalty clear
    To our Alma Mater's name

    Bring out the challenges, we'll win them all
    And fear neither fire nor blood
    Bedans will answer the Clarion's call
    For San Beda, our country, and God!
  • Here's Letran:

    Alma Mater Song
    (English Version)


    Pure Mater, Glorious Letran!
    As the sun is your glory forever,
    And the Laurels give aroma to your air
    As the jasmin breathes off its fragrance.

    Proud of you and your history
    Our souls from today shall swear;
    To conquer for your honor new glory
    And never to forget you, Letran



    In the magical Philippines Paradise
    You were torch of light and knowledge
    And through your vulnerable destiny
    You shall be the rosy color of hope,

    For you were able, according to your example,
    To mould so many illustrious men
    Who resemble stars in heaven
    As they shine on a tranquil evenings!

  • For Benilde( is this correct?):

    Alma Mater Hymn

    Hail, Hail
    Alma Mater,
    Hail to De La Salle!
    We'll hold your banner high and bright,
    A shield of green and white,
    We'll fight to keep your glory bright,
    And never shall we fail,
    Hail to thee our Alma Mater!
    Hail! Hail! Hail!
  • For Mapua

    Alma Mater a song from the builders
    You embody the goal to attain
    Hear a song from the heart of the wielders
    Of compass and transit and chain

    Refrain:
    Alma Mater your name and your story
    We raise our glad voices to thee
    We will strive for the fame and the glory
    Of the M and I and T


    We will follow the light of the new prints
    We will trace on the footoaths of arts
    For our land we the makers of blueprints
    Will struggle to fulfill our part

    Repeat Refrain

    When away from your doors have been parted
    Thy sons in the flight of the years
    Still conscious and firm and whole hearted
    We will hail thee with songs and with cheers

    Repeat Refrain

    itong hymn ay naging sikat nung 3rd term(Jan 2005-March2005) ...laging kinakanta pag may rally...actually nun lang mas naging aware ang mga students about the hymn....ang pinaka memorable line ay yung last line ng refrain....

  • HIMNO DE COLEGIO DE LETRAN
    Alma Mater Song
    Coro

    Alma Mater, Letran esplendente !
    Como el sol es tu gloria, sin fin,
    Y perfuman los lauros tu ambiente
    Como exhala su aroma el jasmin

    Orgullosos de ti y de tu historia
    Nuestras almas desde hoy juraran;
    Conquistar por tu honor nuevas glorias
    Y jamas olvidarte, Letran !

    Solo

    En el magico eden Filipino
    Fuiste antorcha de luz y saber;
    Y atraves de su augusto destino
    De esperanza seras rosicler;

    Pues lograste segun tu modelo
    Tantos hombres ilustres formar;
    Que semejan estrellas del cielo
    En la noche serena al brillar

  • PCU Hymn:

    The PCU Hymn

    Fulfillment of our yearning
    For Christian higher learning,
    To thee our eyes are turning PCU;
    Thy Blue and Silver Banner
    In Firm unchanging manner
    Is steadied by unshaken loyalty.

    Refrain:
    Thine is love of men in service tendered,
    Thine is love of God in worship rendered,
    Thine is wholesome growth in Christ engendered,
    Alma Mater, PCU.

  • yung sa Alma Mater Letran lang ang naiiba kase para akong nakikinig ng Orchestra. Very classy.
  • the hymn na kinanta ng letran is not actually the ALma Mater,, the song is Letran Magpakailanman. Kasi the Alma Mater of Letran ay di tinuturo when your 1st to 3rd yr. but i dont know now,Alumni lang usually ang may alam, because it was taught during graduation,ang its hard to memorize coz its spanish, very few students lang ang may alam..
  • sisihin nyo si Lao. hindi naman nakikinig sa alumni yan eh.
    halos lahat ng dating ka-batch ko sa hs at mga nauna sa akin biwisit sa pagmumukha nyan. iba bloodline ni lao.

    hello, troll police, another troll on the loose.... hahaha :lol::lol:
  • What I have observed is that the PCU and San Beda hymns explicitly declare service to men/country, God and school.

    CSB, Mapua and Letran's hymn are limited only to the love of school.

    Interesting.

    Really...well the studenst themselves must learn the hymn with or without the support of the admin. That's school spirit!

    I heard from my Bedan friends (in college) that they were taught and encouraged to sing the alma mater hymn by upperclassmen themselves and not by the school admin.

    How about the other schools, how did you learn about your alma mater hymn?
