From the East down to West
Mercy Seminary, Mother Seminary
Is the cradle of Good news

From the North down to South
Mercy Seminary, Mother Seminary
Is the home of Peace and Love

Oh Lord may we see
Your banner over us
The love you’ve bestowed upon us
Your beloved Seminarians

Father may we see
Your banner over us
The love you’ve bestowed upon us
Your beloved Seminarians

Morally, Spiritually, Intellectually you have blessed us
Oh Lord, what a manner of your love on us
Holy Father, what a manner of your love
Holy Father, what a manner of your love

 

(Seminary Motto: Domine ut Videam – Lord that I may see).
