Star Spangled Banner
Oh, say, can you see, by the dawns early light
What so proudly we haild at the twilights last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro the perilous fight
Oer the ramparts we watchd, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air
Gave proof thro the night that our flag was still there
Oh say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
Oer the land of the free and the home of the brave?
Oh, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their lovd homes and the wars desolation
Blest with victry and peace, may the heavn rescued land
Praise the powr that hath made and preservd us as a nation
Then conquer we must, when our 'cause is just
And this be our motto "In God is our trust"
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
Oer the land of the free and the home of the brave!
