Chorus: Praised be for ever Jesus and Mary,
A hymn of triumph glorious hymn.
Urging us in paths of duty
Lifting us beyond the skies.
Where God dwells, and ever loves us,
God loves us, Heaven is the prize.
1. O Thorny Crown of deep and ruddy hue.
O Wreath of fairest lillies purest white
Enclosing Names that men and angels love,
And shedding rays of wondrous heavenly light.
2. Device of Union, Strength and Glory,
Close binding hearts that beat in one great cause,
Lead on, we follow wherever you may call us,
Our mighty chant to Heaven and victory soars.
