The Alpha Phi Omega Toast Song

The Toast Song is the official song of Alpha Phi Omega and is usually sung (to the tune of "Alma Mater") at the end of all important functions, such as meetings, fellowships, ceremonies, conferences, etc.



The lyrics to the first verse of this song were created in 1925 by Dale Bartlett of APO USA Omicron Chapter at the University of Iowa. The second verse was written by Robert Northwood of APO USA Epsilon Mu Chapter at the University of Maryland and was adopted as part of the Toast Song at the APO USA National Convention in 1964.

Verse 1

Here's to Alpha Phi Omega,

Loyal brothers we.

True to self and to each other,

Firm in Loyalty.


Daily working, daily striving,

Ever more to be,

Here's to Alpha Phi Omega,

Our Fraternity.

Verse 2

Brothers clasp the hands of Brothers,

Strong the circle we.

Ever mindful, ever serving

All humanity.


Now we raise our grateful voices

In a song to Thee,

True to Alpha Phi Omega

May we always be!

Note: APO USA, while having women members, does not use the feminine form. Thus, the organization is only referred to as a fraternity and the members refer to each other as brothers regardless of gender. In the Philippines, sorority members usually replace all masculine words with their feminine form, where applicable, when singing the Toast Song.

The Alpha Phi Omega Service Song

sung to the tune of "Auld Lang Syne"

Let’s raise our voices in a song

And sing our praise of thee,

For Leadership and Service, too,

We’ll drink a toast to thee.


To nobler cause we’ll bind our lives

We’ll serve in Friendship's name

To bring to Alpha Phi Omega

Everlasting fame.

Though not widely used in the Philippines early on, APO USA has adopted an Alpha Phi Omega Service Song that is sung to the tune of "Auld Lang Syne" before or after a service project. With the advent of new technologies that made it easier to look up all things Alpha Phi Omega online, the APO Service Song has been incorporated into the APO Philippines website and is gaining widespread usage among the different chapters throughout the country.
