"O say, can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose stripes and bright bars, through 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 through the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star spangled banner still wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"
"The Star Spangled Banner"
by Francis Scott Key
