Forever UT Martin
A Song for the Campus Centennial

(Musical setting by Dwight Gatwood)

I.

America since pilgrim days
Has chartered souls to quest—
Her minds, to seek the outward bounds,
No art nor truth suppressed.
In pioneering Tennessee
Aspiring aims endured,
Our founders planting here the hopes
That others have secured.
II. We celebrate a heritage
By discipline passed down:
What days have reeled upon these grounds
Where thousands have moved on.
Now still we range on rainbow dreams,
Our commons crowned with skies,
And touch the echoes of the years,
Outlasting enterprise

III. Unleash the granite cornerstone
That all her latent prayer
Inspire a beat our hearts can feel,
The best our minds can dare.
For golden seasons yet to be
We, sons and daughters all,
Embrace the earth and sound the stars
In measures past recall.

Refrain: Then lift the lamp!
Then raise the cup!
Let bolder hearts in one strong voice command, "UT Martin! Tennessee!
Forever may she stand!"
