The Old Alma Mater (before the name change from Allentown College of St. Francis de Sales to De Sales University)

Ring through the valleys new with day

The distant cantor's call

That night is gone

And with the dawn

The light of hope is born.

For rumbling dreams, the untried dreams,

The marrow of men's goals

Wait anxious now

To follow, follow;

Come and lead them on.

Take up the lighted torch, O Allentown,

Take up the cantor's call

For night is gone

And with the dawn

You are the hope of day.

 

-Rev. Leon M. Bolich, OSFS

Composed 1965

 

The New Alma Mater (after the name change from Allentown College of St. Francis de Sales to De Sales University)

 

The wonders of Your knowledge glow
When diverse human spirits blend.
DeSales has been a place to grow
Ourselves into a thoughtful friend.

Let's forth in gentle service now
With Wisdom as our Book for Life.
Become God's gift to all, somehow
With Wisdom as our Book for Life.

The fire of Your great heart doth warm
When human souls create a bond.
DeSales has been a space to form
Convictions for our journey on.

Let's forth in gentle service now
With Moral Conscience as our Flame.
Become God's gift to all, somehow
With Moral Conscience as our Flame.

The mystery of Your sacrifice calls
When faith and action witness love.
DeSales has been replete with halls
Where Grace has blessed us from above.

Let's forth in gentle service now
With Jane and Francis as our Guides.
Become God's gift to all, somehow
With Jane and Francis as our Guides.

Bernard F. O'Connor, OSFS
Composed 2001
