The Fourth verse of The Star Spangled Banner has almost been forgotten to history, but it is a very powerful finale to the song. More importantly, it truly praises God for His role in keeping our nation together during the war of 1812. Share this with your friends to remind them of what God’s providence has done for us and our nation.
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.
