Horas signo tempus fugit
"Hours signify (that) time flies"
Waar bruisend' golf met skuimgeweld
Teen ruwe rotse stry;
Waar branders breek en heen en terug
Oor gladde strande gly;
Waar winde in die veld baljaar
En maanhaar oor die see;
Waar somerson oor stille meer
Die bergekruin betree:
Daar staan my Alma Mater trots,
Daar stry ons hand aan hand.
Hermanus-skool kweek deug en eer
En trou aan Vaderland.
And evermore our aim shall be
to honour Thy good name;
At work and play, what e'er we do -
in all to play the game.
For higher than the towering range
and deeper than the sea,
and wider than the azure sky,
our love for Thee shall be.
So let us all united stand,
let this our motto be:
To face the task and march ahead
To glorious victory.
