Wyoming State Song

Lyrics by C.E. Winter

Music by G.E. Knapp

Adopted on February 15th, 1955


 

In the far and mighty West,

Where the crimson sun seeks rest,

There’s a growing splendid State that lies above,

On the breast of this great land;

Where the massive Rockies stand,

There’s Wyoming young and strong, the State I love!

Chorus:

Wyoming, Wyoming! Land of the sunlight clear!

Wyoming, Wyoming! Land that we hold so dear!

Wyoming, Wyoming! Precious art thou and thine!

Wyoming, Wyoming! Beloved State of mine!

In the flowers wild and sweet,

Colors rare and perfumes meet;

There’s the columbine so pure, the daisy too,

Wild the rose and red it springs,

White the button and its rings,

Thou art loyal for they’re red and white and blue,

Chorus

Where thy peaks with crowned head,

Rising till the sky they wed,

Sit like snow queens ruling wood and stream and plain;

‘Neath thy granite bases deep,

‘Neath thy bosom’s broadened sweep,

Lie the riches that have gained and brought thee fame.

Chorus

Other treasures thou dost hold,

Men and women thou dost mould,

True and earnest are the lives that thou dost raise,

Strengthen thy children though dost teach,

Nature’s truth thou givest to each,

Free and noble are thy workings and thy ways.

Chorus

In the nation’s banner free

There’s one star that has for me

A radiance pure and splendor like the sun;

Mine it is, Wyoming’s star,

Home it leads me near or far;

O Wyoming! All my heart and love you’ve won!
