who do.

Alma Mater
Hail, Alma Mater, dear!
To us be ever near.
Help us thy motto bear,
thru’ all the years.
Let duty be well performed,
honor be e’er untarned,
Country be ever armed,
West Point, by thee!

Guide us, thy sons, aright,
Teach us by day, by night,
To keep thine honor bright,
For thee to fight.
When we depart from thee,
Serving on land or sea,
May we still loyal be,
West Point, to thee.

And when our work is done,
Our course on earth is run.
May it be said, “Well Done,
Be Thou At Peace.”
E'er may that line of gray
increase from day to day.
Live, serve, and die, we pray,
West Point, for thee.

The Village of Highland Falls
gratefully dedicates this monument
to the memory and honor of our
veterans and soldiers.

May all who visit here
surround themselves in the
comfort of the angel’s wings.

Official West Point March
West Point, at the call,
Thy sons arise in honor of thee,
May thy light shine ever bright,
Guide thy sons aright,
In far off lands or distant seas.

Thy name first above all,
Through all the years thy motto we will bear;
We, thy sons as we fight,
May we strike for the right,
Alma Mater, ever for thee.
