168 "HALLELUJAH CHORUS:'
WORDS THAT CAN BE SUNG TO THE "HALLELUJAH CHORUS."
BY HENRY H. BROWNELL.
If people will sing about Old John Brown, there is no reason why they should n't have words with a little meaning and rhythm in them.
OLD John Brown lies a-mouldering in the grave, Old John Brown lies slumbering in his grave — But John Brown's soul is marching with the brave,
His soul is marching: on. Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah ! His soul is marching on.
He has gone to be a soldier in the army of the
Lord, He is sworn as a private in the ranks of the
Lord — He shall stand at Armageddon with his brave old sword —
When Heaven is marching on Glory, glory, hallelujah, &c. For heaven is marching on.
