The Delta Kappa Gamma Song

Women teachers, to the calling
Firmly rally, never falling,
Duty ne'er upon us palling,
Staunch, courageous, we!
Loyalty and trust e'er heeding,
Mindful of our sisters needing
Aid and guidance from those leading,
Helpful may we be!

To Delta Kappa Gamma
Faith we pledge forever!
Hand in hand, our loyal band,
Forward moving ever!
Onward! tis our sister need us,
Courage, Faith, and Honor lead us!
Wrongs in truth and justice heed us!
Firmly shall we stand!

Guardians of the faith yet sleeping
For our sisters watch e'er keeping,
Deeds of others now we're reaping,
We for others stand!
To us pioneers have given;
We return their gifts to heaven;
Work for others is the leaven
That inspires our band!

Oh, Delta Kappa Gamma
In thy fold we gather;
Unity and Liberty
Shall be our watchwords ever!
Education e'er we'll further;
Each is bound to each as brother,
With this faith in one another,
We shall win, for aye!
