Beautiful Nebraska
Written by Jim Fras and Guy Miller

Beautiful Nebraska, peaceful prairieland,

Laced with many rivers, and the hills of sand;
Dark green valleys cradled in the earth,
Rain and sunshine bring abundant birth.
Beautiful Nebraska, as you look around,
You will find a rainbow reaching to the ground;
All these wonders by the Master’s hand;
Beautiful Nebraska land.
We are so proud of this state where we live,
There is no place that has so much to give.
Beautiful Nebraska, as you look around,
You will find a rainbow reaching to the ground;
All these wonders by the Master’s hand,
Beautiful Nebraska land.

Jim Fras was a refugee from Russia who moved to
Lincoln in 1952. In 1960, Fras and Guy Miller wrote
the words to Beautiful Nebraska. Fras set the words
to music. On June 21, 1967, the Nebraska Legislature
approved legislation adopting Beautiful Nebraska as
the official state song.
