Fortior Ito – Go Forth With Strength

As heirs of Marcellin, O Lord,
We firmly hope and pray
That we may do the best we can
The best in ev’ry way.
For Parramatta Marist High
We hold our flag unfurled
Remember now:
Go forth with strength!
This day myself; next: the world.

Fortior Ito.
Go forth with strength
‘gainst ev’ry foe.
Fortior Ito. Fortior Ito!

Champagnat’s life gave us the grace
To aim towards the truth;
He realised the human race
Had one great treasure: Youth!
He knew that while he could perceive
In man the errant child,
His greater faith and hope and love
Might even tame the wild.

Fortior Ito.
Go forth with strength
‘gainst ev’ry foe.
Fortior Ito. Fortior Ito!

We strive in academic fields
In sport we give our best
In culture, too, we ever shine
And more than pass each test.
In living day by day we hope
That we can hold our own
So when we die, we know our God;
And know by God we are known.

Fortior Ito.
Go forth with strength
‘gainst ev’ry foe.
Fortior Ito. Fortior Ito!
