  1. Alma Mater

    From the hills of Georgia’s northland
    Beams thy noble brow,
    And the sons of Georgia rising
    Pledge with sacred vow.

    ‘Neath the pine tree’s stately shadow
    Spread thy riches rare,
    And thy sons, dear Alma Mater,
    Will thy treasure share.

    And thy daughters proudly join thee,
    Take their rightful place,
    Side by side into the future,
    Equal dreams embrace.

    Through the ages, Alma Mater,
    Men will look to thee;
    Thou the fairest of the Southland
    Georgia’s Varsity.

    Alma Mater, thee we’ll honor,
    True and loyal be,
    Ever crowned with praise and glory,
    Georgia, hail to thee.
