FRANCIS SCOTT KEY
American jurist and poet
(1779 - 1843)

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.
      - [Flags]

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
  What so proudly we hailed as the twilight's last gleaming?
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight
      O'er the ramplarts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
        And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
          Gave proof through 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?
      - Star-Spangled Banner
         (first stanza of the American National Anthem),
        first stanza of the American National Anthem
        [Flags]

Oh! say can you see by the dawn's early light
  What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming,
    Whose stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
      O'er the ramparts we watch'd, 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!
            Oh! say, does that star spangled banner yet wave,
              O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
      - Star-Spangled Banner (st. 1) [Flags]

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen stall stand
  Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
    Blest with victory 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.
      - Star-Spangled Banner (st. 4) [Flags]
