Election Day Reflections
The Star-Spangled Banner....Francis Scott Key
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, thro' 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 wave O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave?
"latter half of verse 4...Praise 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 wave O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave." May it continue to be so.
