The Georgia Military College Alma Mater 

 

The Alma Mater is the anthem of Georgia Military College. Singing or reciting the anthem is but one more way for cadets and students to bind themselves to the traditions of our college. The tune of the Alma Mater, "Annie Lisle", is the name of an 1857 ballad penned by  Boston songwriter H. S. Thompson.  It has been adopted by numerous institutions over the years.  

This recording of the Alma Mater is conducted by Professor Moona Yu and six members of the 139th Corps of Cadets: Eric Arnold, Christopher Mancuso, Luiz Dos Santos, Dominik Khuat, Donovan Poellnitz, and Demelio Tua. 

 

 

O’er the hills of dear old Georgia
Loyal all are we,
Year by year go marching onward
Cheering GMC.

Hail to thee, our Alma Mater,
May thy cause prevail,
And thy name fore’er be honored...
GMC all hail!

‘Neath thy portals visions splendor
Fills with hope the soul,
And a life of valiant service
Thou hast made our goal.

Hail to thee, Our Alma Mater,
May thy cause prevail,
And thy name fore’er be honored...
GMC all hail!

When we from thy halls have parted
And life’s battles won,
Thy great spirit shall inspire us
'Til eternal dawn.

Hail to thee, Our Alma Mater,
May thy cause prevail,
And thy name fore’er be honored...
GMC all hail!
