49. The Battle Hymn Of The Republic

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.
D                   A
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored.
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword.
D     E7   A
His truth is marching on.
A              D         A
Glory, glory, Hallelujah! Glory, glory, Hallelujah!
F#m     D    E7    A
Glory, glory, Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.
I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps.
They have built 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.
He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgement seat.
O 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 lives to make men holy, let us live to make men free!
While God is marching on.
He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave;
He is wisdom to the mighty, He is honor to the brave.
So the world shall be His footstool and the soul of wrong His slave.
Our God is marching on.
