On the city’s northern border,
Reared against the sky
Proudly stands our Alma Mater
As the Years go by.
May it ever be our watchword.
“Conquer and Prevail.”
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater
Dear old Wofford, hail!
Cherished by thy sons and daughters
Memories sweet will throng
‘Round our hearts, dear Alma Mater,
As we sing thy song.
When we from thy halls are parted,
And life’s battle’s on,
Thy great spirit shall inspire us
Till eternal dawn.
