Then Conquer We Must

Here is a stirring rendition of the Fourth Verse of The Star Spangled Banner; he says it's the second verse, but I can't find it in second position anywhere, so maybe when he was young it was sung as the second; I don't know, I don't care; these words must be emblazoned upon your soul.

Very cool video and song. "In God is our trust." Truly.

It is the third verse. They lyrics to all three verses are here.

It's too bad that the America-bashing left who still sing this anthem at ball games don't realize that the last verse justifies war for the cause of freedom, and proclaims that 'in God is our trust'. But then maybe we shouldn't let them know this...

Liola, I think the hymnal actually leaves out verse three, here is the whole thing: http://www.usa-flag-site.org/song-lyrics/star-spangled-banner.shtml

I'm not really sure why.


Rick, I was wondering the same thing :)
