Did you know about this forgotten verse to the “Star-spangled Banner”?

 (Picture: this is the flag on my front porch!)

“O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand;

Between their lov’d 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 preserv’d 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.”

I am proud to be a Catholic American! I display our flag proudly and I am ever so grateful for my US passport so I can always come back home.
