Alabama (Official State Song) – Auburn United Methodist Church Festival Choir

“Alabama” Lyrics

Alabama, Alabama
We will aye be true to thee
From thy Southern shores where groweth
By the sea thy orange tree
To thy Northern vale where floweth
Deep blue the Tennessee
Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee

Broad thy stream whose name thou bearest
Grand thy Bigbee rolls along
Fair thy Coosa-Tallapoosa
Bold thy Warrior dark and strong
Goodlier than the land that Moses
Climbed lone Nebo’s mount to see
Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee

Brave and pure thy men and women
Better this than corn and wine
Make us worthy, God in Heaven
Of this goodly land of Thine
Hearts as open as thy doorways
Liberal hands and spirits free
Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee

Little, little can I give thee
Alabama, mother mine
But that little – hand, brain, spirit
All I have and am are thine
Take, O take, the gift and giver
Take and serve thyself with me
Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee
