  1. Hail Alabama

    Hail, Alabama State University
    How we love your name.
    Your spacious halls respond with knowledge
    Deeds extol your fame.
    Hurrah, hurrah for the Black and Gold!
    Hurrah, hurrah for heroes bold!
    Dear Alma Mater, we adore you,
    In one loud acclaim.

    Alabama! Alabama!
    Hail, hail, hail, hail college so dear
    Alabama, Alabama!
    ’tis for you we’ll cheer
    All hail the men who fight on the field
    All hail your glory that can’t be repealed;
    So hail, hail, hail Alabama!
    Hail, hail, hail!

    To the Black and Gold
    Let our giant echoes roll
    In the breeze, on the air,
    Let our banner wave so fair,
    Sing Hurrah, Sing Hurrah,
    Sing Hurrah, rah-rah-rah-rah

    (Repeat Chorus)

  2. Alabama State Alma Mater

    Alabama State, O Mother Dear
    Again we come to thee
    Our pains and sorrows we forget
    When e’er thy face we see
    O happy harbor, blessed place
    O sweet and pleasant soil
    In thee we hope, in thee we trust
    For thee we pray and toil.

    Thy Sons and Daughters love thy halls
    Aglow with truth and light
    And every heart beats true to thee
    In whom there is no night
    O Alma Mater, fair and dear
    We proudly hail thy name
    Which far and near is known and loved
    And crowned with glowing fame.

    Thy campus flowers and shady walks
    Bring thoughts of Marion Green
    Before thy trials in Beulah Vale
    Which God from us did screen
    But now we stand on College Heights
    Content with God’s decree
    For all He does is right and good
    And makes for liberty.
