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.

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.

[Refrain]

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 State Song: William J. Marsh and Gladys Yoakum Wright

Let us give all the glory to God for his blessings of rain on our parched state. Scripture says it rains on the just and the unjust alike. We, the just and the unjust, must give all thanks to Jehovah Jireh, Jireh Jehová, Yhvh Yireh – whatever language you speak – for His mercies are new every morning.
