Composed by Mormon Tabernacle Choir Conductor Evan Stephens, "Utah, We Love Thee," was specifically commissioned to be sung at inaugural celebrations when Utah officially became the 45th state in 1896. It was first adopted as the state’s song in 1937. Over the years it lost its popularity, however, and it was relegated to the status of the state’s official hymn in 2003. The current state song, "Utah, This Is the Place," was written in 1996 for the state’s centennial celebration and was designated the state’s official song in 2003.  -World Trade Press
"Utah, This is the Place"
Utah! People working together
Utah! What a great place to be.
Blessed from Heaven above.
It's the land that we love.
This is the place!

Utah! With its mountains and valleys.
Utah! With its canyons and streams.
You can go anywhere.
But there's none that compare.
This is the place!

It was Brigham Young who led the pioneers across the plains.
They suffered with the trials they had to face.
With faith they kept on going till they reached the Great Salt Lake
Here they heard the words..."THIS IS THE PLACE!"

Utah! With its focus on family,
Utah! Helps each child to succeed.
People care how they live.
Each has so much to give.
This is the place!

Utah! Getting bigger and better.
Utah! Always leading the way.
New technology's here...
Growing faster each year.
This is the place!

There is beauty in the snow-capped mountains, in the lakes and streams.
There are valleys filled with farms and orchards too.
The spirit of its people shows in everything they do.
Utah is the place where dreams come true.

Utah! With its pioneer spirit.
Utah! What a great legacy!
Blessed from Heaven above.
It's the land that we love.
This is the place

Utah! Utah! Utah!

"Utah, We Love Thee"
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,
Godguarded evermore, Utah, we love thee!
