    1. 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
    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 through 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?

    2. On the shore dimly seen
    through 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 in 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.

    3. And where is that band
    who so vauntingly swore
    That the havoc of war
    and the battle's confusion,
    A home and a country,
    should leave us no more?
    Their blood has washed out
    their foul footsteps' pollution.
    No refuge could save
    the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight,
    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.

    4. O! thus be it ever,
    when freemen shall stand
    Between their loved home
    and the war's desolation.
    Blest with vict'ry and peace,
    may the Heav'n rescued land
    Praise the Power 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 wave
    O'er the land of the free
    and the home of the brave!
