Listen to the song

Battle Hymn of the Republic


Mine eyes have seen the glory 
of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vineyards 
where the grapes of wrath are stored
He has loosed the fateful lightning 
of his terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on 

(Chorus)
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
His truth is marching on

I have seen him in the watch fires
of a hundred circling camps.
They have builded him an alter
in the evening dews and damps
I can read his righteous sentence 
by the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on 

(Chorus)

I have read a firey gospel 
writ in burnished rows of steel.
As ye deal with My contemners
So with you My grace shall deal.
Let the hero born of woman
crush the serpent with his heel
Since God is marching on. 

(Chorus) 

He hath sounded forth the trumpet
that shall never call retreat
He is sifting out the hearts of men
before His judgment seat
Oh be swift my soul to answer Him
be jubilant my feet
Our God is marching on 

(Chorus)

In the beauty of the lilies 
Christ was born across the sea
With a glory in His bosom
that transfigures you and me
As He died to make men holy
Let us die to make men free
While God is marching on 

(Chorus)
