Cheyney, Cheyney, Alma Mater
Thou whose light can never fail.
With a deep and true devotion
We, thy sons and daughters hail.
Hear the pledge thy children offer
Strong of heart and clear of brain,
When thou callest, Alma Mater,
Never shalt thou call in vain.
Thou has taught us not to falter,
To be loyal, brave and true,
Striving upward by thy spirit,
In whatever we may do;
And at last, when we have triumphed
Down the long life battle line,
All the honor and the glory,
Alma Mater, shall be thine.
