Oklahoma OklahomaA
Land O land of the Fair GodB
Land where ancient savage racesC
Through barbarian ages trodB
Through thy story fancy tracesC
Facts above what fictions sayD
Where the world with haste advancesC
Born are nations in a dayD
Where the wigwam stood so lonelyE
Lordly cities rise in mightF
Where spread desert wildness onlyE
Fertile farms and homes delightF
Thou hast summoned to thy bosomG
From the ends of all the earthH
All the youngest strongest bravestI
Full of will and wondrous worthH
O'er thy valleys grow the blossomsJ
Culled from earth's remotest sodB

There is music in thy nameK
There is gladness in thy gloryE
There is fondness in thy fameK
In the wonders of thy storyE
Shines the sheen of noble deedL
Brighter than the glare of battleM
Where the warriors toil and bleedL
Ruling with immortal forcesN
There is found the king of mightF
Over all thy great resourcesN
By the strength of truth and rightF
With thy happy sons and daughtersO
Live the virtues fair and pureP
And the better angels guidingQ
Keep their hearts and souls secureP
There are treasures in thy valleysR
There are treasures in thy hillsS

Bravest are thy noble sonsV
In the thunders of the battleM
And the roaring of the gunsV
Flash of sword and musket's rattleM
Never fearful terror gaveZ
To the staunch and valiant bosomsV
Of thy happy hosts and braveZ
When the roars of hell grow louderT
And the mountains shake in frightF
In the lurid clouds of powderT
They are foremost in the fightF
And when bayonet and musketA2
Sword and saber slaughter ceaseV
They are tenderest and truestB2
In the silent ways of peaceV
O my state A stream of greatnessV
From thy mighty people runsV

Romance of the ages thouE2
Now unknown a moment laterT
Kingly crowns upon thy browE2
Child of all the nations greaterT
Shall thy splendors year by yearJ2
Grow unfading bringing bountiesV
Full of happiness and cheerJ2
Morning saw a desert sleepingQ
Worn and wasted with distressV
Night beheld an empire keepingQ
Watch above the wildernessV
Progress with her wand of magicK2
Touched the sleeping valleys brightF
And they leaped with instant vigorT
Shaking out their locks of mightF
Earth shall send her fairest blossomsV
As a garland for thy browE2

Romance of the ages thouE2
