Music by C. Stanley Mackey (class of 1893)
Words by Henry Hanby Hay (prefect at Girard)
Hail Girard, acclaim her manhood,
Noble, fair, and strong;
Cradle meet for civic virtue,
Praise her with a song.
First thou art in worth and beauty,
First in our regard;
Sing we then our Alma Mater,
Mother dear, Girard.
Children of the great Republic,
Lovers of the flag bestarred,
Mighty masters of the future,
Swell the chorus, shout Girard.
Sing her shrine of marble wonder,
Let no voice be still;
Sing girard and praise Girard
With a royal will,
Singing as we ever march,
With a flag unscarred;
One in voice and heart and will,
Brothers of Girard.
Harvard loves her crimson banner,
Yale her blue divine;
In our pennant, bold and stirring,
Steel and garnet shine.
Brown is busy making scholars,
So is valiant Penn;
Our Girard, our Alma Mater,
She is making men.
