CSS Alma Mater
Music and Lyrics by Samuel Johnson

As the sunrise on the mountains,
Prairies east and forests west,
Where our hearts began the journey
We’ll return to CSS

We’ll return to Colorado
Can there be a school more blest?
Across the miles and seas of changes
We’ll return to CSS

Listen here to the alma mater recorded in GarageBand.
