  3. Dear A&T

    Dear A&T, Dear A&T, a monument indeed,
    Around thy base with grateful hearts
    behold thy students kneel.
    We bless the power that gave
    thee birth to help us in our need,
    We’ll ever strive while here on
    earth all loyalty to yield.

    With joy, with joy, dear A&T,
    thy students turn from thee
    To spread thy trophies year by year from
    Dare to Cherokee.

    Dear A&T, Dear A&T, the signet thou shalt be,
    Set by our great old commonwealth,
    proud boaster of the free
    She’d have the record of her worth
    on granite not inscribed Nay,
    let the children of her birth proclaim it by their lives.

    Dear A&T, Dear A&T, henceforth our aim shall be,
    By precepts wise and deeds more sure to bless the
    State through thee;
    The arts of industry to wield against an idle foe
    A harvest rich from ripened fields or
    what thy students sow.
