Pledge of Allegiance

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."  

 

The Star-Spangled Banner

Top of Page

Oh, say can you see, by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed by the twilight's last gleaming

Whose broad stripes 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.
