Eng vun de fënnef Urschrëfte vum Star-Spangled Banner, vun deenen der hautdesdaags just nach zwou existéieren

The Star-Spangled Banner ass zanter dem 3. Mäerz 1931 déi offiziell Nationalhymn vun den USA. Zur Entstéiung vum Text, kuckt bei Francis Scott Key. D'Musek staammt aus engem populären engleschen Drénklidd ëm d'Joer 1800 vum John Stafford Smith (To Anacreon in Heaven).

Zimlech spektakulär war den Optrëtt vum Jimi Hendrix 1969 zu Woodstock, bei deem en déi amerikanesch Nationalhymn mat verzerrten Téin op senger Gittar gespillt huet a géint de bluddege Krich am Vietnam protestéiert huet.

Bei offiziellen Uläss gëtt fir gewéinlech nëmmen déi éischt Strof gesongen.

The Star-Spangled Banner[änneren | Quelltext änneren]

O say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at 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:
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, now conceals, now discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines on the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! O long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the Heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, for our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
