Texas designated Texas, Our Texas (by William J. Marsh and Gladys Yoakum Wright) as the official state song of Texas in 1929.


Verse 1

Texas, our Texas! All hail the mighty State!
Texas, our Texas! So wonderful so great!
Boldest and grandest, Withstanding ev'ry test;
O Empire wide and glorious, You stand supremely blest.


God bless you Texas! And keep you brave and strong,
That you may grow in power and worth,
Thro'out the ages long.

Verse 2

Texas, O Texas! Your freeborn single star,
Sends out its radiance to nations near and far.
Emblem of freedom! It sets our hearts aglow,
With thoughts of San Jacinto and glorious Alamo.

Verse 3

Texas, dear Texas! From tyrant grip now free,
Shines forth in splendor your star of destiny!
Mother of heroes! We come your children true,
Proclaiming our allegiance, our faith, our love for you.



Texas, Our Texas
