School Songs

The current Alma Mater was sung for the first time in February 1994 with the lyrics written by two students and the music written by two graduates of the university. Former school songs included "Centennial Song," "Old Baylor," "Mary Hardin-Baylor College," "Old Baylor Is Marching," "Slinga da Ink," and "Swing Song."

Alma Mater

Dear Mary Hardin-Baylor, who stands ever proud and strong.
With courage, boldness and loyalty, our Crusader leads us on.
We will keep you high in honor, forever through our days.
With endless time and wonder, our love will never fade.
Ever thankful for our past, into the future we will go.
With faithfulness and devotion to you. Our Purple, White, and Gold.


Up with the Purple

Up with the Purple, the Gold and the White
High o'er the college tower
Forth from her portals we step in her might,
Men and women great in power.

Yes, we come from old Baylor,
Her loyal sons and her daughters true,
And proudly each one hails the memory
Of Baylor College, for we love you.

All hail to thee, old Baylor,
Proud daughter of the South
With heart and voice we praise thee
As we go marching forth.
