God of our fathers! here we stand, A true, a free, a fearless band, Heart pressed to heart, hand linked in hand, And swear that Flag shall float forever! Still glorious Banner of the Free! The nations turn with hope to thee: And when thy mighty shadow falls Along the armory's trophied walls, The ancient trumpets long for breath; The dinted sabres fiercely start To vengeance from each clanging sheath, As if they sought some traitor's heart O sacred Banner of the Brave!

At New Orleans we met the foe; Oppressors fell at every blow; There we laid the usurper low, For maids and wives!
