    Hail to thee, the best school in the land!

    Come all ye loyal sons and daughters,
    Ring out the victory song!
    United all each foe we’ll conquer
    The battle now will not be long.

    For Mercer we will live and die!

    On the city’s western border,
    Reared against the sky,
    Proudly stands our Alma Mater
    As the years roll by.

    Forward ever be thy watchword,
    Conquer and prevail.
    Hail to thee, O Alma Mater!
    Mercer, hail, all hail.

    Cherished by thy sons and daughters,
    Mem’ries sweet shall throng,
    Round our hearts, O Alma Mater,
    As we sing our song.
