Fight Song & Alma Mater

The Raven Fight Song

Ravens are flying high in the sky,
Cheer them on their way.
Hey! Hey! Hey!

Shout out the black and white battle cry,
Victory always.
Sons of grand ole’ St. Benedict,
Raise your banners high.

Soaring on to glory.
Faithful to the story,
Ravens always fly on high!

Alma Mater

O Lord of Every Blessing

By Dr. Ruth Krusemark ’73, Fr. Andrew Hofer O.P. ’94, and Stacy (Niedbalski) Cope ’02

O Lord of ev’ry blessing, we praise you for the place
That sits above the river and under heaven’s grace.
We call her “Alma Mater” from hearts with love aflame
And proudly go rejoicing with Benedictine’s name.

O hear your ravens calling; in faith we fly to you.
For you alone are holy, and you alone are true.
Just as the river flowing, you always will provide.
So in all things forever may you be glorified.

Surround her with your goodness and keep her in your peace.
May Benedictine flourish, her family increase.
Like dappled trees in autumn or flowers fresh in spring,
Your glory casts its beauty where souls in wisdom sing.

This school of your own service has set us on our way
To follow you in knowledge unto the endless day.
Let fear not daunt our movement toward hope of promise bright
As now we run in courage with love’s untold delight.
