ALMA MATER 



Stand firm, O Alma Mater, 
Through all the years to come; 
In days of youth and beauty 
Thy halls have been our home. 
In time of preparation 
Great lessons didst thou teach 
Til now, O Alma Mater, 
The stars we'll strive to reach. 



Lead on, O Alma Mater, 
Thy sons to higher ways, 
Give light and truth unto them 
For all their coming days. 
To thee we'll give all honor, 
Our hopes abide in Thee, 
For thou, O Alma Mater, 
Hast made us ever free.
