fh say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
what so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watch’d so gallantly streaming,
and the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say, does that starspangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
what is that which the breeze o’er the towering steep,
as it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
in full glory reflected, now shines on the stream?
Tis the starspangled banner! 0, long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
