Pledge to the Texas Flag

Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible.

Texas, Our Texas


Texas, our Texas! All hail the mighty State!
Texas, our Texas! So wonder so great!
Bold-est and grand-est, With-standing every test;
O Empire, wide and glorious, You stand supremely blest.

Texas, O Texas! Your free-born single Star;
Sends out its radiance to nations near and far,
Emblem of freedom! It sets our hearts a-glow,
With thoughts of San Jacinto and glorious Alamo.

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.

Chorus:

God Bless you, Texas! And keep you brave and strong.
That you may grow in power and worth Thru-out the ages long.
God Bless you, Texas! And keep you brave and strong.
That you may grow in power and worth Thru-out the ages long.

Toast to Texas


"To Texas . . .
Joyous and sparkling,
Evergreen when it rains, enduring in drought,
Timeless, endless in boundaries, exciting,
Home to the adventurous of yesterday and today,
With shrines from the past
And space and spirit for the future.
To Texas.
Everlasting in the hearts of your people!"
