DKG Song 

Women teachers to the calling

Firmly rally, never falling,

                     Duty ne'er upon us palling,

Staunch, courageous we,

Loyalty and trust e'er heeding,

Mindful of our sisters' needing,

Aid and guidance from those leading,

Helpful may we be.

To Delta Kappa Gamma

Faith we pledge forever.

Hand in hand our loyal band,

Forward moving ever.

Onward 'tis our sisters need us,

Courage, Faith, and Honor lead us,

Wrongs in truth and justice heed us,

Firmly shall we stand!

Guardians of the faith yet sleeping

For our sisters watch e'er keeping

Deeds of others now we're reaping

We for others stand.

To us pioneers have given;

We return their gift to Heaven;

Work for others is the leaven

That inspires our band!

Oh, Delta Kappa Gamma

In thy fold we gather

Unity and liberty,

Shall be our watch words ever,

Education e'er we're further,

Each is bound to each as brother;

With this faith in one another,

We shall win, for aye!
