Words by Carol Cotton
Music by Edith Player Brown
Bennett now our voices raise,
Harmonies of grateful praise;
We thy daughters find thee fair,
Loyalty thy colors bear,
Truth and honor in thy halls,
Faith and love within thy walls;
Ever dear to us thou art,
Firm within each loyal heart.
Alma Mater, now we sing,
Hail the light that thy dost bring;
True we’ve been throughout the past,
True to thee while life shall last.
May we never smirch the good, Gendered here in sisterhood;
May we ever choose aright,
Guided by the honor bright;
Ever lovelier shalt thou live, As thy daughters freely give;
Ever glorious above,
Testimonies of our love.
‘Til the evening shadows fall; ‘Til we heed our last clear call
Mother, may we offer thee
Lives of worth and purity?
Go with us throughout the years.
Smile on us in doubts and fears;
Bless us with thy tender care,
Mother, fairest of the fair!
