Motto Pledge Song

 Woodward Pledge

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 hands, and bid thee God speed, Woodward!
 
Oh, Williams Woodward, founder great, whose name we ever cherish,
Thy deathless story live 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!

Woodward Motto

God of our individual faiths,
we ask for Thy continuing guidance.
Help us not only to understand Thy teachings
but to practice them daily.
Thou has given us so much;
accept our humble thanks.
Amen

Ode to Woodward

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!
Royal Benefactor, thou!
Loyal Sons and Daughters now
Hail thee, dead, yet living too;
Honor thee each year anew;
Strive like thee some good do,
Woodward, Woodward, Woodward, All Hail!
Yea, his spirit ever lives,
In the hearts to whom he gives
Dearer gifts than fame or gold,
Rich with blessings yet untold;
None can prouder birthright hold,
Rich with blessings yet untold;
Woodward, Woodward, Woodward, All Hail!
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
Woodward, Woodward, Woodward, All Hail!
