Happy Fourth of July

— Francis Scott Key, lawyer from Maryland.

O thus be it ever when free men shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation!

Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
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.
