Thou Gracious Inspiration
(Bryn Mawr College Hymn)

Thou gracious inspiration, our guiding star,
Mistress and mother, all hail, Bryn Mawr!
Goddess of wisdom, thy torch divine
Doth beacon thy votaries to thy shrine.
And We, thy daughters, would thy vestals be,
Thy torch to consecrate eternally.


Thou righteous indignation, a co-ed dorm,
Girls and boys together, against the norm.
Tell us, dear students of Bryn Mawr,
Mistress or mother, which one you are.
While those who live in dorms of single gender
Find too often they are called to defend her.
