Hear our song of thanks to you,
Alma mater dear,
Thank you for the lessons we've learned,
Lessons pure and true.

Alma mater dear.
The wisdom you have taught us
Will guide us on our way
Hearts and voices raising,
Hear our songs of cheer.

Our school has taught us to love,
And fight for our right,
Lead us to honor man,
And worship God.

( Repeat Chorus )

Laguna Northwestern College,
Alma mater dear...
