By Bassett Hough


Through the long years a beacon light

O Alma Mater dear!


thy sons and daughters have been led

By thee in paths made clear;

And life grows more beautiful

And darkness with its Pall

At thy behest

Is light upon our way.


All the years we have spent with thee

Are years we'll ne'er forget;

Our hearts are full of memories

Of happy days.


Alma Mata! Alma Mater! Alma Mata!

Forevermore we sing thy praise.


We rejoice in the faithful ones

Who labored for thy fame.


Their many years of toil and care

Were given in thy name,

Our hearts burn with gratitude

For those who went before;

Their spirit lives

With us forevermore.


We adore thee, we honor thee,

We pledge our love anew;

We keep aglow the memories

Of happy days.


Alma Mater! Alma Mater! Alma Mater!

Forevermore we sing they praise.
