The Star-Spangled Banner

First line: O say, can you see by the dawn’s early light / Oh say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light, What / O say can you see / O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light, What so / Oh say, can you see / Oh, say can you see, by the dawn’s / Oh, say, can you see by the dawn’s early light

, 340


1. 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, were so gallantly streaming?And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,Gave proof thru the night that our flag was still there.Oh say, does that star-spangled banner yet waveO’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
2. On the shore, dimly seen thru 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! Oh, long may it waveO’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
3. Oh, thus be it ever, when free men shall standBetween their loved homes and the war’s desolation!Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the heav’n-rescued landPraise the Pow’r that hath made and preserved us a nation!Then 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 waveO’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
