O God, be merciful to me;

Hear Thou a penitent’s sad plea:

I lift my sin-stained heart to Thee–

O God, be merciful to me.

+++++

Unworthy of Thy lightest grace

I dare not lift unto Thy face

My eyes,–but from this far-off place

Cry, God be merciful to me.

+++++

My doom is just, I have no claim

To mercy, save in Jesus’ name,

For me he bore the sin and shame,

O God, be merciful to me.

+++++

He paid the price on Calvary,

My shackled soul from sin to free,

This is my one, my only plea,

O God, be merciful to me.

+++++

Hark! Hark! Within a still, small voice,

“Because thou has made me thy choice,

Thou art forgiv’n.”–my soul rejoice,

For God is merciful to me.

Dedicated to the Emory Boys

O who are we?  Why don’t you know?

Stop, look, and listen!  Ere you go

Your eyes and ears will tell you so,

We’re Emory boys!  We’re Emory boys!

Chorus:

Emory boys! We’re Emory boys!

Although much work our time employs,

School days for us hold many joys.

We’re Emory boys! We’re Emory boys!

+++++

The gold and blue we proudly wear,

And scatter sunshine everywhere:

Stop, look, and listen! Take you share

From Emory boys! From Emory boys!

Chorus

+++++

In years to come, when we’re a host

That’s spread abroad from coast to coast,

Stop. look, and listen! ‘Tis our boast:

We’re Emory Boys! We’re Emory boys!

Chorus

Dedicated to the Emory Boys

‘Neath a vaulted sky of sapphire,

Set in the sunlight’s gold,

Where the soughing pine trees whisper,

Weird tales and legends old;

In the very heart of Georgia,

‘Mid scenes most fair to see,

Stands our honored Alma Mater,

Our beloved Emory.

Chorus:

O Emory, fair Emory,

Thy loyal sons and true,

Thy colors bright, hail with delight,

Hail! Hail! The Gold and Blue.

+++++

For her colors she has borrowed

The sunbeams’ golden light,

Placed it on a deep blue pennant

Filched from a starlit night;

And although afar we scatter,

In memory still we’ll view

The stately halls of Emory,

And hail the Gold and Blue.

Chorus
