Carmen Cryptiense
Crypt Song

Pio cantu celebremus
With due song let us celebrate
Scholam, pie memoremus
The school; let us duly celebrate
Conditores, quis debemus
The founders/Cooks, to whom we owe
Tot Musarum munera.
So many gifts of the Muses.
Laus Ioanni tribuenda
Praise to John should be given,
Laus Ioannae concinenda
Praise to Joanna matched to it;
Vivat Schola Cryptiensis,
Long live Crypt School,
Vivat in perpetuum!
May it live for ever!

Stat per annos domus crescens
Our house stands and grows through the years
Fortiorque fit senescens
And gets stronger as it ages;
Laete prole revirescens
Flourishing anew with each happy generation
Dum labuntur saecula.
While the centuries slip by.
Viget prisca fide plena
It is strong and full of ancient pride,
Viget nova spe serena
It is strong and clear with new hope;
Vivat Schola Cryptiensis
Long live Crypt School,
Vivat in perpetuum!
May it live for ever!
