Alma Mater

  • ALMA MATER

    Now the evening star is fading,

    Day is drawing to a close,

    And our hearts are heavy-laden

    Full of sorrow, full of woe.

     

    Chorus:

    Armstrong! Armstrong!

    guiding light to all,

    If on land or sea we wander

    We will ever heed thy call.

     

    Armstrong! Armstrong!

    Alma Mater dear,

    May joy be yours,

    May peace be yours,

    Throughout the years.
