O College of our heart’s desire,
Resplendent in our gaze,
Awake in us thy scared fire
And let us to thy truth aspire
Throughout the coming days.
And may the thing that thou has sought,
Our nation’s woeful lack,
True union of the heart be brought
And differences be set at naught
Between the white and black.
Paine College, guardian of the way
That each young foot must tread
Thy gates are open to this day
And our firm, martial strides display
Hearts clean and unafraid
