Shout all hail for the
Methodist Girls' School
Shout it loud and long
Our beloved alma mater
Come and join our song

Come and wear our color royal
Wear the cardinal red
Strong in purpose
Firm and loyal
To our cause be wed

Lift her banner bear it onwards

Here while in our youth

And the truth to love
Learn to write and speak correctly
And good manners have

Lift her banner bear it onwards
