Class of 2025 Class Hymn

Class Hymn

While it’s common for incoming freshmen to be welcomed to college by campus leaders, it’s not so common for that encouragement to come in the form of a hymn — but that’s what we do at Baylor. Since 2008, each incoming class has been welcomed with its own unique hymn, each capturing an aspect of this moment of excitement, possibility and transition in a student’s life. This year’s hymn, “Deeper Down Deeper Still,” was written expressly for the Class of 2025, with lyrics by University Chaplain Burt Burleson (BA ’80), music by Kathy Gladen Johnson (BM ’76), and an arrangement by Assistant Director of Chapel Carlos Colón (MM ’93). The lyrics speak to the unique time of life in which these incoming freshmen find themselves, and the music video features snapshot images of the Baylor experience — moments for students to capture, embrace and celebrate:
