Please provide the words to Texas' state song "Texas, Our Texas" I Can't believe I can't find the words. It starts like:

Texas, Our Texas, all hail thee mighty State. Texas, Our Texas so wonderful so great. Boldest and grandest withstanding every test.

Later lyrics are:

God bless thee Texas and keep thee safe and strong That you may grow in power and worth Throughout the ages long.

Copied from Wikipedia:


TEXAS, OUR TEXAS
William J. Marsh and Gladys Yoakum Wright, 1924.

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.

CHORUS: God bless you, Texas! and keep you brave and strong,
That you may grow in power and worth, throughout the ages long.
God bless you, Texas! and keep you brave and strong,
That you may grow in power and worth, throughout the ages long.

2. Texas, O Texas! your freeborn single star,
Sends out its radiance to nations near and far,
Emblem of Freedom! it set our hearts aglow,
With thoughts of San Jacinto and glorious Alamo.

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.


[The first word of the third line was originally largest, but when Alaska became the largest state when it was admitted to the United States in 1959, the word was replaced with boldest.]

The Wikipedia article has several links to recordings at YouTube.
