With full hearts and loud swelling cheers



Alma Mater

Mercersburg’s official school song, with lyrics by Thomas Crichton and music arranged by Henry Ready, is sung by the student body “with full hearts and loud swelling cheers.”

High tower above us her pillars,
In majesty crowning the hill;
She’s faced the wild storm waves of years,
And bravely she faces them still.

Come, Mercersburg all, and we’ll praise her;
The world will we tell of her fame.
’Til down the long train of the ages
Shall echo old Mercersburg’s name.

This world sweeping mightily onward
Will whiten our heads with its years;
But ever we’ll greet Alma Mater
With full hearts and loud swelling cheers.
