Seeking Wisdom and Sublimity

Texas, Our Texas!

Today is Independence Day in Texas, and it makes me miss my homeland. It’s been 175 years since we won independence from Mexico, and in honor of this holiday I am posting the lyrics to our state song, along with a very nice video.

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.
