A Marine stuns the crowd at a Tea Party with the fourth verse of the Star Spangled Banner. So Much for a "Secular Nation". Thank you for the reminder that our rights come from God and not any man or group of men. God Bless America and Semper Fi Marine!

The fourth stanza:

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved 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!

I remember years ago that some member of a prestigious athletic team did NOT put his hand over his heart when the National Anthem was played. It made national news. People were disgusted with that athlete. TODAY, we have Obama. ‘Nuff said!

God save us from the day when our flag is removed from all the government buildings.

The fourth verse is very rarely sung;so the true meaning has been banned,de facto, for decades.

There is something about watering the tree of liberty that never gets mentioned either.

The 4th verse of "My Country 'Tis of Thee" is well worth noting also; this country WAS a special place to millions of Americans past -- too bad that concept has been lost on so many today.

Our fathers' God, to thee,
author of liberty, to thee we sing;
long may our land be bright
with freedom's holy light;
protect us by thy might, great God, our King.

I was mistaken. This was in Georgia. I just saw another video and before he starts singing he is introduced by Herman Cain of Atlanta.

Video with Herman Cain.

No, he's a normal human with an excellent voice, unlike Elton.

A poster on Utube said that standing for a song is like bowing to a king.

This is the scum we are up against (and in the White House, of all places.)

Was the fourth stanza included in the document that Hoover signed when he adopted it as a national anthem? Or was it only in Key’s poem?

He’s no Elton John....... Thank God for that. He’s 100 times better. The only problem is my screen was blurry when I saw the video.

Just so there’s no mistake: The only reason I mentioned Sir Elton was as a reference to Rush paying EJ $1 million to serenade him last night.

I think I was in 4th grade when we sang this verse. Then again that was in the 40’s, and the big shocker, it was a NYC Public School.

I have always enjoyed the fourth verse.

Andy, you may want to read the Wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Star-Spangled_Banner

We are all blessed to be Americans.

May God protect and preserve the United States of America.

Neither the Wiki nor the good history lesson from Dr. Asimov mentioned Francis Scott Key's nine year earlier poem, to the same tune, honoring the greatest hero of the previous war. It is still appropriate, although those disapproving the fourth verse so well sung here are on record preferring spitting to its message.

There is already! 'Sophisticated' people want to replace it as the National Anthem with "My Country, 'Tis of Thee," because "The Star Spangled Banner" is just 'too aggressive' and 'jingoistic.' I kid you not.
