A hundred years and more have flown
Since Odin founders,
one by one Came through in prairie schooners,
bold As others, in the past had done.

They searched the prairie, far and wide,
To seek a home where they might dwell
In peace and happiness, the while,
Affirm the slogan, all is well.

It chanced, they stopped where Odin stands
And opportunity seemed to lurk
Where open prairie far expands
With recompense for earnest work.

Then others came and paused the while
With inclination to remain
And live their lives in pleasant dreams
Of happy homes, they might maintain

Now as the years go fleeting by
And joys reflect the Odin way.
May we resound the joyous cry,
All hail our town this gladsome day!
