Happy Independence Day!!!

Some of the most popular American Patriotic songs we sing have verses that most have never heard before, but they are REALLY good.

Battle Hymn of the Republic

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
While God is marching on

The Star Spangled Banner

     O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
     Between their loved home and the war’s desolation.
     Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the Heav’n rescued land
     Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
     Then conquer we must, when 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!
