RAISE SONGS TO BOWDOIN
Words by K.C.M. Sills, Class of 1901
Music by C.T. Burnett
Revised lyrics by Anthony Antolini ’63


Raise songs to Bowdoin, praise her fame, 
And sound abroad her glorious name;
To Bowdoin, Bowdoin lift your song, 
And may the music echo long
O’er whispering pines and campus fair
With sturdy might filling the air.
Bowdoin, from birth, our nurturer and friend
To thee we pledge our love again, again.

While now amid thy halls we stay 
And breathe thy spirit day by day,
Oh may we thus full worthy be
To march in that proud company
Of poets, leaders and each one
Who brings thee fame by deeds well done.
Bowdoin, from birth, our nurturer and friend
To thee we pledge our love again, again.
