One True Delta
A Woman of love, peace, and happiness. With a passionate, burning dream to become one of the women who wears the Crimson and Cream
Her heart, like the elephant Is as strong as can be While, like the pyramid, she has three sides One side for them, one side for you, And always one side for me
Her love for DST Was evident from the start when asked why be a Delta? She said, "It's just in my heart!"
With the wind to her back And God's presence there just the same Her dream reached reality And a Delta she became
So she will wear the Crimson and Cream and it will be there to stay because she will be "One True Delta" Until her last dying day.

Long ago and far away Twenty-two began a brand new day. They wanted more than just a social life. They desired to be more than just a wife. These twenty-two had a larger vision and that soon caused them great division. Some went left, but most went right and strove to reach a higher light. They wanted to make a better place and give their children a broader space To expand their minds and their hearts And give to the world the best parts Of being Intelligent, Female, and Black. These twenty-two started the forward motion, but theirs was just the tip of this Delta notion. They gave the foundation and an example to follow. They made it strong and solid, not hollow. Their legacy remains as a directional arrow and the time is now to release the sparrow, to fly free and soar to heights unknown, but she must never travel alone. Along with her sisters the job gets done. Along with her SORORS the battle is Won.

AND GOD SAID
I'll make a woman, a woman of essence A woman of pride, a woman who is capable Of putting trivial things a side A woman of individuality A woman of love, A woman who is enfranchised With the pearls from above A woman who is genuine, A leader of integrity, God said... I'll make me a REAL woman, I'll call her DST.
A SISTER'S LOVE
There is nothing better than a sister's love; She knows exactly what to say and what you are thinking of.
A sister will be there in your time of need, When you go astray, down the right path she will lead.
A sister will be an ear when you need someone to talk to, She will be a shoulder to cry on when you are feeling blue.
A sister's love will never die, The kind of love shared between you and I.

The Delta Woman
Hand made by God
Modeling and serving
She is conspicuous as a growing seed
She is solid as a rock
She is as wayfaring as an ant
She stirs, serves, and hastes on.
Hand-made by God
Constant and valiant
Come wind, come rain
Comes no discouragement
She is relentless
Her vowed intent
She is a strong woman!
Hand-made by God
No task will she flee
This is right, for you see,
She is a Delta!
Hand-made by God
No hobglobin nor foul fiend
Can daunt her fine spirit.
So, she labors night and day;
Being ever true to herself,
Being ever true to Delta!
A Delta Woman
A Delta woman, full of style and grace, You hardly ever, see a frown on her face. Full of class and of light, everyone knows, This Delta's tight, She never complains when Something doesn't go her way, She prays and has faith, Knowing everything will be O.K. A Delta woman, it could be you or me, But a Delta woman couldn't be just anybody...

Delta Sigma Theta
I am divine, Gently graceful, and yet elusively powerful. The blood of queens flows through my veins. My ancestors ruled the ancient kingdoms of Africa with wisdom unfathomable. The dream in colors of cream and crimson. I am the living dream of my ancestors. In the company of my sisters, I serve other selflessly, The spirit of our glorious founders guides me and their light shines within me ever so brightly. I am the living dream of my founders. A lady of true wisdom, you will find none greater. Make way for this dynamic woman of Delta Sigma Theta.
