Graceland Forever, dear Alma Mater
Long may she ever firm keep her stand.
Her sons and daughters carry to others
Her fame throughout the land, Rah, rah, rah.
Graceland, Graceland, we're all for you,
Strong, united, loyal and true.
We'll carry on 'til victory is won,
Oh, Graceland, we're all for you!

Alma Mater Hymn:
Come Graceland sons and daughters all,
and join our happy throng.
With loyal voices let us raise
our Alma Mater song.
O hillcrest home of vision wide,
where bonds of love hold sway.
Where all may learn in life and lore
'tis Thee we praise today.
Through memory a thread shall run,
of golden richness made.
Cementing there the treasures rare
in thy foundation laid.
O Alma Mater, guide us on,
thy standard e'er unfold
And call us on with memories
of days 'neath the Blue and Gold.
Through years and decades long to come
thy battlemented tower
Shall rise to call the youth of lands
to answer to the hour.
And while thy work shall carry on,
our benisons are told
In lives of honor, truth and right,
the seal of the Blue and Gold.
—Roy A. Cheville, 1926
