West Chester, hail, all hail, noble and strong.
To thee with loyal hearts we raise our song,
Swelling to heaven high, our praises ring,
West Chester, hail, all hail, of thee we sing.

Majesty as a crown rest on thy brow;
Pride, honor, glory, love before thee bow;
Ne'er can thy spirit die, thy walls decay,
West Chester, hail, all hail, for thee we pray.

West Chester, hail, all hail, guide of our youth,
Lead thou thy children on to light and truth,
Thee, when we hence depart, others shall praise,
West Chester, hail, all hail, through endless days.
West Chester, hail, all hail, through endless days.
