 Star-Spangled Banner

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
 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 star-spangled banner yet wave,
 
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
                                  
United States National Anthem
 written by Francis Scott Key
