Alma Mater (Crimson and the Blue)

Far above the golden valley
Glorious to view,
Stands our noble Alma Mater,
Towering toward the blue.

CHORUS:

Lift the chorus ever onward,
Crimson and the blue
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater,
Hail to old KU.

Far above the distant humming
Of the busy town,
Reared against the dome of heaven,
Looks she proudly down.

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Greet we then our foster mother,
Noble friend so true,
We will ever sing her praises,
Hail to old KU.

(REPEAT CHORUS)
