Alma Mater

Far, far above the waters
Of the deep blue sea, 
Lies the campus of the College,
Where we love to be.
Far away behold Kanisah!
Far beyond, Sannin!
Rising hoary to the heavens,
Clad in glorious sheen.
From Iraq or from Arabia
From the banks so green
Of the great Egyptian river
Or from Palestine;
From the waters of Abana
Lebanon serene,
We salute thee, Alma Mater!
Oriental Queen.
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater!
We would ever be
Worthy children. Make us faithful,
Faithful e'er to thee!
Whereso'er the land that calls us,
E'en across the sea,
We'll salute thee, Alma Mater,
Hail! O Hail! to thee.

Chorus:
Look before us!
Shout the chorus!
See the banner wave.
AUB in thee we glory;
Make us true and brave.
