  3. “SE Missouri State Alma Mater”

    High above the Mississippi,
    Ageless in majestic flow,
    Rise they halls in native grandeur,
    Beacon light to all below.

    Cape Girardeau, Alma Mater,
    Forward press unceasingly,
    In the quest for truth untrammeled
    Till humanity is free.

    Round thee springtime
    flings her blossoms,
    June in verdure veils thy hills,
    Autumn paints in poignant beauty
    Winter’s snows fall soft and still.


    With the passing of the ages,
    Brighter still thy light shall glow;
    Sons and daughters more shall gather
    Here to laugh, and love, and grow.
