As Francis Scott Key recorded
today we’re being put to the test
will we stand and be counted
or sacrifice our heritage given
as in the still of the night shown
our flag flying proudly over all
led by the good and virtuous
united all creeds and beliefs
for the good of each and all
understanding united we stand
and separately we’ll surely fall
thus stand and be found alert
ready to give all for our freedoms
as in the still of the night once before!
