Official State Hymn of Utah

In 1937 "Utah We Love Thee" by Evan Stephens was designated the official state song of Utah. In 2003 the designation was changed to the official state hymn, when "Utah, This is the Place" by Sam and Gary Francis became the new state song. All State Songs


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!
Land of the pioneers, Utah, we love thee!
Grow with the coming years, Utah, we love thee!
With wealth and peace in store, To fame and glory soar,
God guarded, evermore, Utah, we love thee!
