We love the shrine of Delta Phi! 

Here Science borrows Fancy's wing, 

And Romance looks through Reason's eye ; 
Here Genius learns to toil, and sing 
The songs of cheerfnl indiistry. 

Chorus— Oi Delta Phi, of Delta Phi, 

We love the songs of Delta Phi ! 

Here friendship, wit, and genial mirth 

Banish with sunshine hours of gloom ; 
And when life meets its last of earth, 
Fond Memory decorates the tomb.

Forever in our sky, 
Beam with a mild celestial light 

On Alpha Delta Phi. 
The hngering forms of pleasures fled, 

May cause all other hearts to sigh ; 
But pure and noble joys are oura, 

In Alpha Delta Phi. 

There is a chain which draws, 

Our hearts in friendship nigh ; 
It is the secret, golden bond 

Of Alpha Delta Phi. 
Here Art and Genius both unite, 

To lift our aims and motives high ; 
A light to cheer the scholar's heart 

Is Alpha Delta Phi, 

The laurel wreath of fame 

Upon her brow shall lie; 
While victory shall crown the name 

Of Alpha Delta Phi. 
In after-years though we may part, 

We'll ne'er forget the sacred tie 
That binds us closely heart to heart — 

'Tis Alpha Delta Phi.

Air — " My ludgiag is on the cold ground." 

When the earnest heart tumetli in sorrow away 

From the friends tbat allure to deceive, 
And findeth no heart-love its own to repay, 

Alpha Delta its want will relieve. 
For the trustful and strong here may fellowship find, 

Where refinement with manliness blends ; 
While around her dear altar our pledges we bind, 

That true hearts shall ne'er fail of true friends. 

Here, too, may the scholar his young ardor bring, 

Whether genius or talent hia share. 
And in Science rise proudly on resolute wing, 

Or in Romance weave tapestries rare. 
Whatever their gifts, whatever their still. 

All they to whom honor is dear, 
Alpha Delta will welcome, with hearty good will, 

To a brotherhood kind and sincere. 

So with love and with songs Alpha Delta we crown, 

Alpha Delta, the genia! and pure, 
And the years as they roll shall add strength and re- 

While Learning and Friendship endure. 
Then brothers huzza ! for the Crescent and Star, 

May their mild lustre never grow dim, 
Till all noble spirits, both near and afar, 

Shall join in the glorious hymn.

That's joined by hearts so strong aad true; 
The future, boys, is all before us, 
Its paths in glory we'll pursue. 
Above our beating hearts is gleaming 
The star whose pure beam lights our way, 
And still, o'er all our long path streaming. 
We see the Crescent's fadeless ray. 

Sing onl sing on! we well may glory 
In Alpha Delta's old renown, 
While countless tongues repeat her story, 
And countless hearts revere her crown. 
She lives ! our hearts are hers forever ! 
She fades not with the fading years ! 
Her children will desert her never, 
Alike her own in smiles and tears. 

Sing on 1 sing on ! it still is morning 
In Alpha Defta'a summer day, 
All clouds of opposition scorning 
She brightens on her rismg way.

And day by day we leave this hour, 
May Memory's record e'er be proving 
Old Alpha Delta's fadeless power.

And kindly welcomes greet us.

Joined heart and haad together stand 
A band of feithful brothers.
