"TEXAS OUR TEXAS"
"Texas Our Texas"
(music by William J. Marsh, words by Marsh and Gladys Yoakum Wright.)
Texas, our Texas! All hail the mighty State!
Texas, our Texas! So wonderful, so great!
Boldest and grandest, withstanding every 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, throughout the ages long.
Texas,O Texas! Your freeborn single star,
Sends out its radiance to nations near and far.
Emblem of freedom! It sets out hearts aglow.
With thoughts of San Jacinto and glorious Alamo.
Texas, dear Texas! From tyrant grip now free,
Shines forth in splendor your star of destiny!
Mother of Heros! We come your children true.
Proclaiming our allegiance, our faith, our love for you.
