Battle Hymn Of The Republic Lyrics By The Mormon Tabernacle Choir

    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 loosed the fateful lightening of his terrible swift sword
    his truth is marching on

    glory glory hallelujah
    glory glory hallelujah
    glory glory hallelujah
    his truth is marching on

    i have seen him in the watchfires 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

    i have read a fiery gospel writ in burnish’d rows of steel

    as ye deal with my condemners so with you my grace shall deal
    let the hero born of woman crush the serpent with his heel
    since god is marching on

    he has sounded form the trumpet that shall never call retreat
    he is sifting out the hearts of men before his judgmentseat
    oh be swift my soul to answer him be jubilant my feet
    our god is marching on

    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
