Alma mater

High on a hilltop
You stand serene
Proud in your beauty and dignity
Yet in our hearts is where your spirit lies
That your grateful daughters will remember all their lives
Firm is your teaching and tender your care
Guiding and giving us memories to share
Blessed with tradition, loyalty, and love
We'll live alma mater, ever more
We won't forget alma mater, Marymount.
