MISS MARY WARD, Regent, Presiding.



Oh say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,

                        What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,

Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through 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 through the night that our flag was still there.

 Chorus:  Oh say does that star-spangled banner yet wave

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


Invocation        .           .           .           Dr. J.N.H. Summerell



REGENT -- Daughters, we meet to honor the memory of our ancestors, to renew our pledge of loyalty to our country and our flag, and to emphasize the privilege and duty of patriotism.

CHAPLAIN -- O! Give thanks unto the Lord; call upon His name; make known His deeds among the people.

RESPONSE -- In Thy name shall they rejoice all the days, and in Thy righteousness shall they be exalted.

CHAPLAIN -- Seek ye the Lord and His strength; see His face evermore.

RESPONSE -- Remember His marvelous works that He hath done.

CHAPLAIN -- The Heaven, even the Heavens, are the Lord’s.

RESPONSE -- But the earth hath He given to the children of men.

CHAPLAIN -- Praise the Lord, O! Jerusalem; Praise the Lord, O! Zion.

RESPONSE -- For He hath strengthened the bars by the gates.  He hath blessed thy children within thee.

CHAPLAIN -- He shall judge among the nations and shall rebuke many people, and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.

RESPONSE -- He maketh wars to cease unto the ends of the earth. He breaketh the bow and cutteth the spear in sunder.  Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

CHAPLAIN -- The Lord will give strength unto His people.  The Lord will bless His people with peace.

RESPONSE -- Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, I will make thee an eternal excellency, -- a joy of many generations.
