Daughters of a great and singing nation,
Let your voices rise in dedication,
Music tells unspoken noble creeds;
Music beautifies the simplest deeds;
Sing we now to Sigma Alpha Iota.

Sing the greatness of the soul and spirit,
Sing the joy of peace and friendship’s merit,
Music is a kind and truthful speech;
In a language out of mere word’s reach,
Sing we now to Sigma Alpha Iota.
