Ye laboring millions whose courage is known,
The strength of the nation, the sinew and bone,
We call you to come, and on you we depend,
Our country to save, and our homes to defend;
Then come in your might, with your banners unfurled,
This banner that’s honored all over the world,
This loved land of liberty ever must be,
What our fathers designed it, the land of the free

These stripes and bright stars must be rallied around,
And wherever dishonored be raised from the ground,
And on every land, and on every shore,
Be planted more firmly than ever before;
Come then to the rescue, ye patriot band,
With warm hearts united, let’s join hand in hand,
And proudly in triumph our flag shall still wave,
O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

This star-spangled banner must now be unfurled,
And our Union proclaimed to the civilized world,
And tyrants and traitors we soon will let know
That our stripes and bright stars they cannot o’erthrow;
Come patriot sons of that patriot band,
Who fought, bled, and died for Columbia’s land,
And our star-spangled banner in triumph shall fly,
When Palmettos and Serpents with infamy die.

Come forth in your might, for your cause it is right,
And the day-star will rise on the gloom of the night,
And our star-spangled banner we’ll fling to the breeze,
And trample down Serpents and Palmetto trees;
In God be your trust, for conquer you must,
Your cause it is noble, your cause it is just,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave,
O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
