The words are:

I'm singing a song of my homeland
Most wonderful place that I've seen.
My song cannot fully describe it
I call it land of my dreams.
New Mexico,
Land of the sun
Where yucca blooms
The sunset sighs.
New Mexico,
Your starry nights,
Your music sweet as daylight dies.
My heart returns
It ever yearns
To hear the desert breezes blow,
Your snow, your rain, your rainbows' blend,
I'm proud of my New Mexico.

Translation:

Yo canto de un país lindo
Más bello no he visto yo,
Mi canción no puede decirlo,
Como mi corazón.
Nuevo México,
País del sol
Palmillas floreciendo allí.
Nuevo México,
Tus noches lindas
Traen recuerdos para mí.
Mi corazón
Llora por tí me dice a mí
Te quiero yo.
Tus sierras y tus valles
Son mi lindo Nuevo México.
B. A copy of the state bilingual song exhibited with this bill shall be filed with the secretary of state to be lodged in the archives of his office.
