The Alma Mater

by Bela Hubbard Hayden

In Tennessee's fair eastern mountains
reared against the sky,
Proudly stands our Alma Mater
as the years go by.

Forward ever be our watchword,
conquer and prevail;
Hail to thee! Our Alma Mater, 
Milligan, all hail!

Cherished by her sons and daughters, 
memories sweet shall throng 
Round our hearts, O Alma Mater, 
as we sing this song.

Forward ever be our watchword, 
conquer and prevail; Hail to thee! 
Our Alma Mater, Milligan, all hail!
