Hail St. Andrews
Hail to thee our Alma Mater!
Bold thy banner waving o’er us!
Let each loyal son and daughter
Proudly stand and raise the chorus:
From old Scotia’s lofty lands
To Carolina’s gentle plain;
Now thy noble name St. Andrews
Ever glorious shall remain!
Hail, all hail to thee St. Andrews
May thy courage be unbending.
Guided by His mighty hand whose
Loving mercy knows no ending.
With thy saltire raised before us
Cross of white and field of blue
We proclaim thy faith victorious
And thy vision ever true!
