"Battle Hymn of the Republic" as written by and Jimmy / Carroll....
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 lost the fateful lightening 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

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
His truth is marching on

[Chorus]

    General CommentI think this is the tune that influenced Internationale; after 1945 meeting on Elba, Red Army soldiers took this tune to Soviet Union with some random Russian words - and those were the first version that I learned the tune with, in 1960-s.
    Now I look at this hymn - well, it does remind me "Arise ye workers from your slumbers,
    Arise ye prisoners of want"...
