OSCEOLA DAVIS:

There's a college living in the green

Where the young and old and in between

Come to add their luster to the name

Herbert Lehman earned before they came

And because of what its children give

Lehman College finds the strength to live

As a whole nobly greater than its parts

And alive forever in their hearts

Oh may you, Alma Mater,

Grow in stature through the years

And cherish those who come to you

With hopes and dreams and fears

A home in which they learn to be

Honest heirs of a precious legacy

Of beauty, truth, and eternal youth

In mind and spirit free
