 (a) The state song is "Texas, Our Texas" by William J. Marsh and Gladys Yoakum Wright:

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)

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.
(chorus)

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, 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.

(b) During the rendition of the state song when the state flag is displayed, all individuals present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the state flag with the right hand over the heart. Those present in uniform should render the military salute at the first note of the state song and retain this position until the last note. When not in uniform, individuals who are wearing a headdress that is easily removeable should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, with the hand over the heart. Individuals who are not citizens of this state should stand at attention.

(c) When the state flag is not displayed, those present should face toward the music and act in the same manner as they would if the state flag were displayed there.

(d) The state song should be rendered after the national anthem if both are rendered.
