ALMA MATER

MUSIC BY EDITH GINGRICH | WORDS BY MAX HELLMAN © 1958

VERSE 1
LeTourneau’s sons and daughters true,
Are faithful ‘round this world to you.
Our prayers ascend to God on High,
That in His will your path may lie.
VERSE 2
Caressed by sunny southern skies
Our honored Alma Mater lies.
Among the murm’ring green pines near,
We lift our praise to thee so dear.
CHORUS
O Alma Mater, praise to thee,
We pledge anew our loyalty.
The happy days we here have spent;
A new zeal to our lives have lent.
In joyful song it must be told:
All hail LeTourneau, Blue and Gold;
All hail LeTourneau, Blue and Gold.
