Commencement Exercises 






My country, 'tis of thee, 

Sweet land of liberty, 

Of thee I sing; 

Land where my fathers died. 

Land of the Pilgrims' pride! 

From ev'ry mountain side 

Let freedom ring! 

Our fathers' God, to thee 

Author of liberty, 

To thee we sing! 

Long may our land be bright 

With Freedom's holy light; 

Protect us by thy might, 

Great God, our King. 


O say, can you see, — by the dawn's eai'ly light, 

What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming? 

Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight, 

O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming? 

And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air, 

Gave proof thro' the night — that our flag was still there. 

say does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave 

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
