Play the alma mater

[Franklin College Men’s Chorus
Directed by Casey J. Hayes, Ph.D.,  A.J. Thurston Chair of Music, Music Department Chair and Director of Choral Activities]

Hail to Franklin, how we love thee,
Alma mater, hail!
Gold and blue wave bright above thee,
Through the calm and gale.
Sons and daughters sing thy praises
And thy name adore,
While the heart its jubal raises
“Franklin evermore!”

Franklin College Fight Song

Play the fight song

Stand up and cheer!
Stand up and cheer for Franklin College
For today we raise
The gold and blue above the rest
Rah, rah, rah!
Our team is fighting
For we are out to win the fray.
We’ve got the steam – rah, rah
We’ve got the team – rah, rah
For this is Franklin College day.
