The Star-Spangled Banner by Francis Scott Key

"The Star-Spangled Banner" is the national anthem of the United States.

O, 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, thro’ the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming; And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof thro’ the night that our flag was still there;— O, say, does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen thro’ the mists of the deep. Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes, What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep, As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses? Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream; ’Tis the Star Spangled Banner, O, long may it wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band that so vauntingly swore That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion, A home and a country shall leave us no more? Their blood has washed out their foul footstep’s pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of fight or the gloom of the grave; And the Star Spangled Banner in triumph doth wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O, thus be it ever, when Freedom shall stand Between their loved home and the war's desolation; Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land Praise the power that hath made and preserved us a nation! And conquer we must, when our cause it is just. And this be our motto, 'In God is our trust' And the Star Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave O' er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
