From the author’s note at essay’s end:
Since it is rarely sung, here is the final verse of the national anthem of the United States of America, “The Star Spangled Banner”:
Oh, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation;
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-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 doth wave,
O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave!
Read, think, and plan.
