The Marines’ Hymn

In 1929 the Commandant of the Marine Corps authorized the following verses of The Marines’ Hymn as the official version:

“From the Halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country’s battles
On the land as on the sea;*
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.

Our flag’s unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in ev’ry clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines

Here’s health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we’ve fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven’s scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.” 

*Nov. 21, 1942, the Commandant of the Marine Corps approved a change in the words of the fourth line of the first verse to read, “In air, on land, and sea.”

 The Marine’s 235th birthday is this coming Wednesday November 10, 2010. I want to personally thank every Marine past, present and future for serving their country. I appreciate your service and sacrifice. God bless all of you and your families. 

Much GRACE and peace to you,
