5th Grade “Star Spangled Banner” Words and Music

“Star Spangled Banner” Francis Scott Key

1st verse only

Oh, Say! can you see,
by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed
at the twilight’s last gleaming,

Whose broad striped and bright stars,
through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched
were so gallantly streaming?

And the rockets’ 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?
