THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER.
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:
Chorus. And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
4 Oh, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and wild war's desoiation,
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!"
Chorus. And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave
