lyrics

Battle Hymn of the Republic
words by Julia Ward Howe

1. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord,
he is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored.

He has loos`d the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword,his truth is marching on.

Glory, glory hallelujah! Glory, glory hallelujah!
Glory, glory hallelujah! His truth is marching on.

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

Glory, glory hallelujah! Glory, glory hallelujah!
Glory, glory hallelujah! His truth is marching on.

5. 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.

Glory, glory hallelujah! Glory, glory hallelujah!
Glory, glory hallelujah! His truth is marching on.
