Elmhurst College Alma Mater

Sung by the 1971 College Choir

Elmhurst College's Alma Mater was written in 1923, the same year the College hosted its first homecoming, with the music by Henry G. Schuessler '20 and the words by Herman Borne '20.

Where the elms in stately glory
Spreading branches raise,
There our cherished Alma Mater
Hears our song of praise.

School we love, Elmhurst, live for aye;
God shed His Grace on thee.
Loyal be thy sons and daughters
To thy memory.

Student days will soon be over
For our happy throng,
Still we hold they mem'ry precious
Ever dear and strong.

School we love, Elmhurst, live for aye;
God shed His Grace on thee.
Loyal be thy sons and daughters
To thy memory.

When life's closing days draw nearer,
Sad the heart may be,
Still shall dreams of youth and glory
Linger long o'er thee.

School we love, Elmhurst, live for aye;
God shed His Grace on thee.
Loyal be thy sons and daughters
To thy memory.
