"Battle Hymn of the Republic" as written by and Morton / Gould....
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 hath loosed 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.

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 have read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps
His truth is marching on.

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

I have read a fiery gospel written in burnished 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
His truth is marching on.

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

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgement seat
Oh, be swift, my soul to answer or be jubilant, my feet
His truth is marching on

Glory glory hallelujah
Glory glory hallelujah
(Glory glory hallelujah - [back 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
His truth is marching on.

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

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 have loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on.
