Canticle of St Hilda

To mark the 1st Anniversary of St Hilda’s Catholic Academy Trust, some children from each of the schools within the trust had the opportunity to go to Whitby and write a song with a professional song writer.

 

Bishop Terry has named it The Canticle of St Hilda.

 

Born in 614

To serve and to adore

Our God and all the people around her

She was selfless and brave

She loved, she forgave

The poor, the sick, the lost and the lonely…

 

Taught Caedmon how to sing

His prayer to God the King

From miles around they came to hear and learn

And though it was long ago

We still believe and know

St Hilda was the one to lead the way

 

Chorus

Ring the bells

Illuminate the nations

Ring the bells

Show the way

Ring the bells 

Be an inspiration

Ring the bells

Every day

 

Born a Royal Princess

She served us non the less

Her palace was an Abbey in Whitby –

she was loving she was kind

With a wise and clever mind

She suffered but she never left it show

 

And when it came to pass

That she would breathe her last

The seagulls dipped their wings in adoration

And many miles away

Or so they people say

The bells rang out and angels led the way

 

Chorus

Ring the bells

Illuminate the nations

Ring the bells

Show the way

Ring the bells 

Be an inspiration

Ring the bells

Every day

 

Many leaves, many branches

many questions, many answers

Live to learn, learn to love

Pray to God in Heaven above

St Hilda taught us how to pray

By what she did and how she lived each day

We have love, we’ve the nerve to show how we will serve

To others that is our St Hilda’s way

 

Chorus

Ring the bells

Illuminate the nations

Ring the bells

Show the way

Ring the bells 

Be an inspiration

Ring the bells

Every day
