O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
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,
Through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so valiantly 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 star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Oh 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 preserv'd 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!
