Another of the "one nation Under God" memes can be found in claims that those words appear in our national anthem. But wait, I don't recall ever singing those words.

Well, they do appear, towards the end of the fourth stanza of Keys work. But we only sing the first stanza.

For the record, The Star Spangled Banner did not become our nation's official anthem by congressional action until 1931.
