Totally unexpected by me. An audience member sings a different version of the National Anthem. It was very good.

An 60’ish guy who is marine stood up and told Cain that people forget the SECOND STANZA to the Star Spangle Banner...He then sang it in a beautiful, powerful and moving voice..people in the crowd realized what is happening and stood up with hands on their hearts.

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 thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s 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?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

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!

Thanks. When Frances Scott Keyes wrote the lyrics it was a poem IN DEFENSE OF FORT MC HENRY and was published in the local paper. It didn’t take long for the guys at the local watering hole to realize that the words fit a popular bar song TO ANACHRION (sp) IN HEAVEN (About a local whore who got into heaven by mistake) It’s difficult to find accurate words of the last song...most have been “cleaned up”...But years ago I ran across them...Quite descriptive.

There are four stanza...although most books only contain three (IF you can find them)

He finished with the fourth stanz:

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen 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 preserved us a nation.

Then conquer we must, for our cause is just, And this be our motto--"In God is our trust." And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

A guy in the crowd began singing the last verse of The Star Spangled Banner in a great voice. Slowly the crowd arose with hands over hearts as the man continued. Then wuld applause. Here are the lyrics:

O, 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!

My fifth graders could get extra credit for memorizing all four...Third grade was required to memorize the first and to sing the Preamble of the Constitution (School House Rock version) and “Fifty Nifty United States in which they sang the names of all fifty in alphabetical order....When they were in high school in US History...They still could sing all three...Teacher had to change her bonus point requirements cause they all still knew all three and would break out in song just to make the point.

Thanks...Have had them memorized for years...as post above explains.

Here's some more music trivia for you. Columbus kept two journals...In the one for the King he noted that when his men landed they fell on their knees and sang the “TE DEUM”

The first book published in the colonies was a music book: THE MASSACHUSETT BAY PSALM HYMNAL. On Page 100 of that book was a loose translation of the “TE DEUM”. For years it was referred to as “OL Hundred”

Anyone want to guess what we call it today? (No fair peeking!)

The left is desperate to erase our Christian hertitage. It enrages them when someone confronts their lies about our nation's founders.

Is it necessary that any one should [ask], “Did General Washington avow himself to be a believer in Christianity?" As well may we question his patriotism, his heroic devotion to his country. His mottos were, "Deeds, not Words"; and, "For God and my Country."

- Nelly Custis-Lewis (Washington’s adopted daughter)

“It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.”

George Washington

“What students would learn in American schools above all is the religion of Jesus Christ.”

George Washington. [speech to the Delaware Indian Chiefs May 12, 1779]

"To the distinguished character of patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian"

George Washington. [May 2, 1778, at Valley Forge]

Rebellion against tyrants is obedience to God.

Ben Franklin's personal motto and his idea for what he wanted on the back of the great seal of the USA. (search for the phrase and you can see the seal)

THE DOXOLOGY

If music was taught in our school true to our countries history there would be no doubt that the founders indeed intented us to be ONE NATION UNDER GOD.

There is a little hymn called CHESTER, written for the church at Chester, MA that pretty well explain our founders belief...It was sung in the churches and the tune was played by the fife players as the soldiers marched into battle.

Let's tyrants share their iron rods..and slavery clank her galling chains...We fear them not we trust in God. New England's God forever reign.

He said he was a 'FORMER Marine'.

Someone give him a gentle nudge and let him know there's no such thing being a 'former' Marine. ;-)

BTW my great X 4 grandfather served at Valley Forge. Family lore says Washington referred to him as the “little dutch man” and that he and a friend went into the German camps to spy (and visit relatives) and when returning they stole a white stallion, as a gift for GW, from the corral and stampeded the remaining horses. (It was reportedly the horse that Tully painted Washington sitting on.)

Lest we forget our Jewish friends.

Benjamin Franklin pledged five pounds (worth approximately $800 in today’s dollars) in support of a synagogue for “the people of the Hebrew society in the city of Philadelphia.”
