Gamma Phi Beta Creed

Gamma Phi Beta from the past has given

A heritage that makes a fuller life.

Gamma Phi Beta in the present bids

Us strive for lasting values and ideals.


Gamma Phi Beta in the days to come

Will prove that fundamentals can endure.

Therefore we shall embody our lives

The truths that make for finer womanhood.


Once more we pledge a loyalty that means

Adherence to all true and noble things;

A learning that enriches all our days

With magic gold that is forever ours;


A labor that each hour will glorify

The simple, common task, the common cause;

A love that will be strong and great enough

To encompass and to pity all the world.
