that was AMAZING. it seriously gave me chills over and over again - why have we never sung that second verse? in this war-filled time that verse is such a moving and needed reminder of what we stand for as a country!
Thanks for sharing that. I would have had no idea about the additional versus and the origin of "In God We Trust".
Actually that is the fourth verse. And we don't use the original verses anymore anyway. AND...the tune was an old British Pub tune! But if you ever want to get a real stirring in your patriotism, read the story of how Francis Scott Key came to write the words.
Mr Giggles---I was only aware that there were three verses.
