Alma Mater

On a hill in Hunterdon against the rising sun
Stands beloved our Alma Mater, pride of time to come
Our sons and daughters ever striving towards the goal in sight
Though we falter in the struggle, we stand for right


Hail to Thee dear Alma Mater as we sing thy praise
Loyal hearts remember fondly many happy days
May the green and gold be ever cherished, emblem of the just
Humbly now we stand recalling, life is a trust.
