Alma Mater

"Reign, Clark Atlanta"

Thy noble tricolor now ripples the breeze,
Bridging the mountains, spanning the seas,
Calling thy sons and thy daughters so true;
Reign, Clark Atlanta, we rally to you.

Hail! Alma Mater, we ever aspire
Thy sacred mission to fulfill entire;
Thy noble banner has lighted our way.
Hail to the Crimson, the Black, and the Gray!

Deep in our hearts shall thy precepts abide;

Culture for service, our goal and our guide.
Through stern privation, through fortune and fame,
We'll find a way and achieve in thy name;

Reign, Alma Mater, forever we pray-
Let the tricolor that heralds thy sway
Fly from the ramparts of learning so free,
For we shall ever be faithful to thee.

Reign, Alma Mater, our hearts be thy throne;
Reign, Clark Atlanta! Thou reignest alone!
Reign, Clark Atlanta! Thou reignest! Reignest!
Reign, Clark Atlanta! Thou reignest alone!

Alma Mater

Hail to thee, our Alma Mater,
Guardian of the right,
Love and truth and sacred honor,
Lead us toward the light.
Where our graduates may gather,
Striving every day,
Thoughtful of their Alma Mater,
God will make a way.
When the crimson and gray banner
Waves its victory,
True and loyal sons, Atlanta,
We’ll come back to thee.

Atlanta, Atlanta, school we love,
Deeply graven on each heart,
We, thy faithful sons and daughters,
Pledge to thee our part.


Clark College
Alma Mater

There’s a school on a hill that 
we love good and true, 
With a love that enlightens
Our soul through and through:
‘Tis the shrine of a race and 
‘Tis owned by a king,
And dear to our hearts
Are the praises we sing.

Oh! We love every building 
that stands on the hill, 
And we love e’en the trees 
wav’ring, whispering still
And oft to our dear 
Alma Mater we hark
Oh! God bless you and keep you, 
Our dear old Clark.
