The Star Spangled Banner in Triumph Shall Wave

The fourth stanza of the Star Spangled Banner:

 

O thus be it ever, when freemen shall 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 as 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!

    Thank you for this lovely post.
    We often forget those that
    came before us and made our
    freedoms possible. It is such
    a wonderful opportunity on Independence
    Day to stop and give thanks.
