Mount Holyoke Genealogy Project

Oh, Mount Holyoke, we pay thee devotion,

In the fervour of youth that is strong,

The courage of right is thy garland,

Our lives, alma mater, thy song.

So from East and from west now we gather,

And united in firm love to thee,

All years are as one and their loyal pledge,

Mount Holyoke forever shall be,

Mount Holyoke forever shall be...
