SONGS OF THE SOLDIERS AND SAILORS. 9
3, BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC.
(B flat.)
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the
Lord; He is trampling cut 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, hallelujah1 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 dams I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and
flaming lamps; His day is marching on.
Glory, glory, hallelujah! etc.
He hath sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is silting out the hearts of men before His judg­ment seat.
Oh, be swift, my soul ,to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.
Glory, glory, hallelujah! etc.
