This was the official song of the state of Utah, U.S. until 2003 when 4th grade students urged their representative to introduce a bill to replace the state song with someone more fun to sing. The official state song is now “Utah, This is the Place,” which is the public domain, but a written copy of the score must be purchased from the composer.
Land of the mountains high, Utah, we love thee!
Land of the sunny sky, Utah, we love thee!
Far in the glorious west, Throned on the mountain’s crest,
In robes of statehood dressed, Utah, we love thee!
Columbia’s newest star, Utah, we love thee!
Thy lustre shines afar, Utah, we love thee!
Bright in our banner’s blue, Among her sisters true,
She proudly comes to view, Utah, we love thee!
