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.
