Alma Mater

Lyrics

Verse one
Far above Cayuga’s waters,
With its waves of blue,
Stands our noble Alma Mater,
Glorious to view.

Refrain
Lift the chorus, speed it onward,
Loud her praises tell;
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater!
Hail, all hail, Cornell!

Verse two
Far above the busy humming
Of the bustling town,
Reared against the arch of heaven,
Looks she proudly down.
