THE US NATIONAL ANTHEM TEXT The Star-Spangled Banner the star-spangled Banner the national anthem of the United States of America. His text was taken from the poem defence of Fort McHenry written in 1814 by Francis Scott Key. The author of the 35-year-old lawyer and part time poet-lover wrote this text after he witnessed the bombardment of Fort McHenry in Baltimore by British ships during the war of 1812. The first performance took place in Baltimore on October 29 after the American premiere of the play by August von Kotzebue Count benevskoe. For a long time it was believed that the text was put to a popular British drinking tune. However, in the 1980s, scientists managed to establish that the melody had its author. They were John Stafford Smith John Stafford Smith, a British historian of music, composer, organist and singer who in 1766 wrote a humorous hymn Society Anacreonte Anacreon in Heaven uniting London musicians. The song was officially used in the naval forces of the USA in 1889 and then in the White house, 1916 and March 3, 1931 resolution of the Congress was declared the national anthem. The song has 4 verses, but today only the first of them is widely known. Original lyrics O say can you see by the dawn's early lightWhat so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming.Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fightO'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in airGave proof through the night that our flag was still there.Oh say does that star-spangled banner yet waveO'er the land of the free and the home of the brave On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deepWhere the foe''s haughty host in dread silence reposesWhat is that which the breeze o'er the towering steepAs it fitfully blows half conceals half disclosesNow it catches the gleam of the morning''s first beamIn full glory reflected now shines in the stream'Tis the star-spangled banner Oh long may it waveO'er the land of the free and the home of the brave And where is that band who so vauntingly sworeThat the havoc of war and the battle's confusionA home and a country should leave us no moreTheir blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.No refuge could save the hireling and slaveFrom the terror of flight or the gloom of the graveAnd the star-spangled banner in triumph doth waveO'er the land of the free and the home of the brave O thus be it ever when freemen shall standBetween their loved home and the war's desolationBlest with victory and peace may the heav'n rescued landPraise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.Then conquer we must when our cause it is justAnd this be our motto 'In God is our trust.'And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall waveO'er the land of the free and the home of the brave Poetic translation of Igor Cossich 2000 See you see you in the sun first luchos than in the sunset hours, we parted, glazami tell me he's alive, our striped placita sky and sun our star samai fly rockets and shells srivilliputtur Fort our night did not give up.Answer it is true the flag still reynad the land of the free home of the brave Away where the shore is barely visible in tomanage our haughty enemy attacks otdyhaet morning breeze in the sky razvivaetsa hiding from the eyes of the newly otkrivaut he again flashed the clouds veil porwal full of his glory appeared to the world proudly.This star is our flag About let it reynad the land of the free
