The Star Spangled Banner
Oh, say can you see, by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched ere so gallantly streaming,
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
Oh, say does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave,
Oh, thus be it ever when free men shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Pow’r that hath made and preserved us a nation,
Then conquer we must, for our cause is just,
And this be our motto: “In God we trust!”
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
