Words to "Winnebago Glorious", words and music by Bruce Lewis.

Oh Winnebago, glorious,
We raise a song to thee.
our camp on wooded hilltop high,
We love so faithfully.
Thru storm and strife we'll stand by thee,
Our hearts are ever thine.
We'll fight for you, in all we do,
Our camp in God's own shiren.
Oh, Alma Mater, dear to us,
We pledge undying love.
Thru all the coming years we pray
That you will reign supreme.
And when we dream of bygone day,
We'll raise our voices in thy praise.
