Official Songs

Loyalty Song
Words and Music: Patricia Ann Wooldridge

We honor you this day,
for the future, our shining ray.
Your past, a history bold;
Today's opportunities we find unfolding.
You stand for things held dear.
May we become with each new year;
Greater, grander and the best of them all!
We who are loyal,
Devoted to service
We who stand out about the rest.
Oh, Tau Beta Sigma, may we become the best!

Music, our common tie
Which binds us side by side.
Melody, harmony, and fun
We share our joys with everyone.
God grant us strength to be
Renewed to join with thee.
Give us courage to stand for all that we hold secure
We who are loyal,
Devoted to service
We who stand out about the rest.
Oh, Tau Beta Sigma, may we become the best!

National Hymn
We come together one and all with music in our hearts.
In T-B-S we serve the band and always do our part.
We're T-B-S and friends to all and we care what we do,
So sing out loud and we'll be heard,
To you we will be true.
Lyrics and Arrangement: Beta Eta Music Committee
