Chorus.

Praise Him, ye Earth and Sky,
Praise Him, oh Sea!
Glory to God on High:
Texas is free!

Chorus.

Henceforth our Texan realm shall be
A sacred fane of Liberty;
No foreign Lord shall evermore
Wield here his sway, invade her shore.

Solo Voices.


So vow upon this holy ground
A proud, a valiant State to found,
Where culture dwells, where law is feared,
Where Truth is honored, God revered.
