LYRICS:
My heart slips away beside the old Rio Grande
To the Land of Enchantment, my New Mexico
I slip far away, home to that Land of Enchantment
To the land that I loved so long ago

Where the desert rose lifts its face to the clear blue crystal sky
Coral mountain splendor brings the tears to my eyes
By moonlight, soft guitars played by strong weathered hands
Down in Old Mesilla, by the banks of the Rio Grande
My heart slips away, home to the Land of Enchantment
For the glory of God rests on that land!

(Choir:)
My heart slips away beside the old Rio Grande
To the Land of Enchantment, my New Mexico
My heart slips away home to the Land of Enchantment
To the land that I loved so long ago

In the summer sun, village children run thru’ the desert sand
Far away on the mesa, summer storm-clouds are at hand
Autumn candle lights shine so bright by the mission, like days of old
Sailing clouds of silver, October moon-rise of harvest gold!
My heart slips away, home to the Land of Enchantment
For the glory of God rests on that land! Porque la Gloria de Dios se queda en esa tierra!
