Guilford College Alma Mater

Kindly light our founders kindled
Midst primeval oak and pine,
Let thy radiance, truth revealing,
Now upon our spirits shine.

Sacred mem’ries thru the archways
Of the swiftly passing years,
Still undimmed dear Alma Mater
Strengthen us, dispel our fears.

So our hearts and voices joining
Echo Guilford’s ancient fame.
Hallow’d be thine each endeavor.
Hallow’d be fair Guilford’s name.
