The blue of our colors is like the azure blue of dawn,
The gold like that rich hue seen in the rising sun,
Short are the years we spent with thee, and ere from thee we part,
We wish to tell thee of the love that’s hidden in our heart

We love thee, Alma Mater, and e’er to thee’ll be true,
Alma Mater, Alma Mater, we love thy gold and blue.

We love our Alma Mater dear, we love her blue and gold,
And ever at her blessed feet our treasures will unfold,
We love to hear her praises dear as swift the years roll by,
In gentle cooing of her doves that nest mid earth and sky.
