Description

TO ST. AMBROSE
Under thy name, under thy patronage,
We lived and studied thru our college days.
And now we raise one mighty voice to give
Thy blessed name a sounding ring of praise.
Saint Ambrose! Let the heavens bear our cry
To thee, and past thee, to His lofty throne.
Saint Ambrose! Hear the praises of thy sons,
And bless each one and take him for thy own.
Thy kind and watchful heart, through all the
years
Has lent the aid of heaven to our toil.
We laid our cares and problems in thy hands,
And we have found thee generous and loyal.
Christ's teachings on thy tongue and in thy pen,
Christ's holiness about thy sainted head,
We pray thee, Ambrose, to hold fast our hand,
That time may never see the two unived.
And as thy trees, the Oaks, have towered high
From tiny acorns planted long ago,
So, with thy Master's and thy own good grace
Shall this thy college cultivate and grow.
—The Class of 1949
