Alma Mater

Oh Alma Mater, Woodward High
 We pledge our true devotion
 Thy sons and daughters chant thy praise
 From ocean to ocean.
 Like those who through thy hundred years
 Thy light have carried onward,
 I pledge my heart,my head,my hand,
 To thy ideals, Woodward!
 I pledge my heart,my head,my hand,
 And bid thee God Speed, Woodward!

 Oh, William Woodward,Founder great,
Whose name we ever cherish,
Thy deathless story lives in us,
Thy precepts never perish.
Still strong and dauntless through the years
Thy children carry onward.
 I pledge my heart, my head, my hand
To thy ideals,Woodward.
 I pledge my heart, my head, my hand,
And bid thee God speed Woodward!

Ode to Woodward

(1st verse) 

Day that brings to minds and hearts,
 Names that quick pulsation starts;
 Hear the voice in each clime
 Mingle in the grateful chime
 Gladly praising throughout time,
 Mingle in the grateful chime
 Woodward, Woodward, Woodward, All Hail!
