Well I just learned something today and I thought that I would share it. Repeat this or singing it in certain places may get interesting.
I did run a 2nd check on this. Only 2 checks however for those that want to fight.

The Star-Spangled Banner, Second Verse (from Heavenly Highway Hymns, Second Edition).
Oh, thus be it ever when
free men shall stand
Between their loved homes
and the war's des-o-la-tion!
Blest with vic-t'ry and peace,
may the Heav'n res-cued
Praise the Pow'r that hath made
and preserved us a na-tion!
Then con-quer we must, when our cause, it is just,
And this be our mot-to:
"In God is our trust!"
And the Star-span-gled Ban-ner
in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free
and the home of the brave.
********** To me that fellow sings better than many of those folks that I've heard sing at the superbowls.........From another post **** where from was not stated. 3rd and 4th verse's ***************
"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!"
***************** Hope that I hear it in full someday and a straight regular singing not a look at how I can twist it like some "singers" do. **********
