The Star-Spangled Banner
(words by 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 watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ 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?
