1.              The call has come to Afric's sons
To do and to endure
                The light of knowledge and of power
                She stands to spread abroad
                Our hearts we raise in songs of praise
                For wisdom's purest ray
                While young and old in joy acclaim
                Collegiate Rah! Collegiate Rah!

2.             A band of few have dared to raise
                On this our sunny shore
                The beam of Afric's dome sublime
                Supported by these four
                Truth, Justice, Honour, Love for all
                In every age of clime
                This home of learning shall upraise
                The true Collegiate Rah! Rah! Rah!

3.             No failure shall our course impede
                No clouds our sky o'er cast
                Onwards we move to victory
                North wards we turn our steps
                Till Afric's sons imbibe the best
                Of Goodness and of peace
                And Fathers to their sons bequeath
                The true Collegiate Rah! Rah! Rah!

4.             Frankness and honour, reverence for all
                Love for our Fatherland, love for mankind
                Joy in our country's god, wreaths for the great
                This be thy character O Collegiate Rah!
                These shall thy off-springs drink
                From thy holy stream
                O Rah Collegiate Rah! Rah! Rah!

5.             Ye forward sons of yore
                Show us the way
                Ye budding sons of Af
                Follow the path
                The best that be in earth's domain
                This Afric's sons shall prize
                Till youths attain to heights untrod
                To realms unknown before
                And see new vistas of renown
                With the true Collegiate Rah! Rah! Rah!
