Theme Song

We are one in the spirit, we are one in the Lord
We are one in the spirit, we are one in the Lord
And we’ll pray that all unity may one day be restored
And they’ll know we are Theresians by our love, by our love,
Yes, they’ll know we are Theresians by our love.

We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand,
We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand,
And together we’ll spread the news that God is in our land
And they’ll know we are Theresians by our love, by our love,
Yes, they’ll know we are Theresians by our love.

We will work with each other, we will work hand in hand,
We will work with each other, we will work hand in hand,
And we’ll guard each one’s dignity and save each one’s pride
And they’ll know we are Theresians by our love, by our love,
Yes, they’ll know we are Theresians by our love.
