When I started checking the blogs this morning, I checked Stacy's first (always!) and saw this video. Didn't watch it. Clicked over to No Sheeples Here and here's the video again. I thought, "Oh good grief, this must be another video that's going to make me cry." I watched it. It is.
I wish I could meet Lewis.
Via No Sheeples, here's the lyrics:
Oh! Thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory 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!
