Yesterday, Sunday, we stood and sang the Star-Spangled Banner in Primary. Actually, I got to sit because they don't require the piano player to stand. Anyway, we handed out copies of the song to all of the older children and proceeded to sing all three verses. I wish would we do that more often. I think the third verse is awesome. I am going to put it here for your enjoyment.
Oh, thus be it ever, when free men 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 nation1
