Our Lady of Good Succour we raise our thoughts to thee
where the Don flows down the valley to greet the silver Dee.
Help us to foster bravely, amid this beauteous scene
a faith both deep and loving, Our Lady of Aberdeen
Our Lady of Good Succour in the country saints have trod,
Saint John the brave Confessor laid down his life for God;
with the zeal of great Columba and Margaret, saint and queen,
inspire anew thy children, Our Lady of Aberdeen.
Our Lady of Good Succour may the love of God enfold
our people and surround them with gifts of grace untold.
May a brighter dawn be breaking and a fairer hope be seen
for our city and our nation, Our Lady of Aberdeen.
Our Lady of Good Succour once by this comely shore
men looked for thy protection and favours would implore.
To serve thy Son still guide us, O patroness serene; for Scotland is thy kingdom,
Our Lady of Aberdeen
