St. Monica Academy (SMA) Alma Mater Song

by Marcial L. Briones/Luis G. Dato

Hail dear Alma Mater, thee we honor
Proudly in the dawn we raise thy banner
Santa Monica, Sweet Alma Mater
With thy praise thy loyal sons and daughters

Fill the land wherever they may roam
Alma Mater, Alma Mater never
Shall thy glory wane but shine forever,
Joyous to thy call thy sons will rally,

Far or near, from mountain, shore or valley,
For in thee our spirits find its home

Santa Monica, O Santa Monica
In thy fold a true and valiant band
Through the years whatever time may bring us,
Alma Mater, we shall ever stand.
