"All Hail! O Davidson!"
Davidson College Alma Mater, written by G. M. Maxwell, M.D. '1896 in 1938
Maxwell, G. M.
All hail! O Davidson, Our dear old Alma Mater,
Our Fathers loved thee, gave their best to thee;
And still today their loyal sons undaunted,
Follow them on, and pledge their loyalty.

All hail! O Davidson, Thy classic halls are standing,
Type of the faith of those who founded thee;
Casting their spell upon thy sons enchanted,
Holding them still, in faith and loyalty.

All hail! O Davidson, One hundred years behind thee,
Still pressing on to glories yet to be;
Thy stalwart sons in serried ranks behind thee,
Our voices raise, in hymns of loyalty.
