Howard Scott Pearlman – Star Spangled Banner - 4th Verse lyrics

Oh thus be it ever when all men shall stand

Between our loved homes and war's desolation

Blessed with beauty and peace may our heavenly lands

See the light up above and become more than nations

But if struggle we must for the cause that is just

May we choose as standards those that all men can trust

Then the Star Spangled Banner in honor shall wave

Among the lands of the free and the home of the brave

Francis Scott Key
Howard Scott Pearlman
