The College Anthem and Motto

The College Anthem:

Ring out the battle call of the Duty!
Unfurl the flag of FAITH AND TOIL!
We deem our soul's eternal beauty
A life-long Victor's worthy spoil.

A thousand such are proudly gone before us
To win and spread our College renown;
'tis ours to swell with our voices the chorus
And with our deeds enrich her crown.

Chorus:
FAITH AND TOIL,
conquer less alliance wherein we clasp human hands unto God's
In His control find we true self-reliance,
My hand and God's - Whate'er the odds
My hand and God's - Whate'er the odds
My hand and God's Evil's onset hold in defiance!

The College Motto:

The crest is to an institution what the insignia is to a military general. It symbolizes its ethos, status and purpose. The crest of St. Joseph's College of Commerce spots two scrolls – one above, on which is inscribed the motto of the institution in Latin – 'Fide et Labore', meaning ' By Faith and Toil', and the other beneath, with the name of the institution.

A shield at the center bears the cross which is symbolic of the Christian faith; and the two bees on either side of the lower part of the cross are an expression of tireless work. Further the palm leaves encircling the shield are a call to victory, and the crown above, the crown of glory.

The college motto is 'Fide et Labore' which means 'By Faith and Toil'. Faith, among other things gives a person commitment to God, to his fellow beings and to intellectual pursuits. Toil is the necessary prerequisite for success.
