Sesquicentennial Alma Mater

Dr. Ed Whitelock and Dr. Stephen Mulder created an original Alma Mater in honor of Gordon's 150th birthday in 2002. The work was presented to the faculty in their pre-semester meetings in August and was performed by the Gordon Choirs on November 1, 2002, as Gordon inaugurated Dr. Lawrence Weill as President. The new Alma Mater was sung at Graduation for the first time on May 10, 2003.

Written by Ed Whitelock

Remember him, our namesake strong 
Who braved the fight at Gettysburg
Remember too the many sons
Who studied here our nation's work
Our history runs deep and long
Three centuries we've served the young

Sing praise to Gordon College
Our gateway into knowledge
Our path from base uncertainty
To honor, courage, loyalty

Remember now our own desires
That brought us to these humble halls
Remember always we aspire
To answer truth and beauty's calls
We've seen one hundred fifty years
Of triumph over ignorant fears

Sing praise to Gordon College
Our gateway into knowledge
Our path from base uncertainty
To honor, courage, loyalty
