Lyrics: 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. Gloria! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Gloria! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Gloria! Gloria! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Gloria! His truth is marching on! I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps; (Truth is marching, truth is marching, truth is marching) They have builded Him an alter in the evening dews and damps; (Truth is marching, truth is marching, truth is marching) I can read His righteous sentence in the dim and flaring lamps, (Truth is marching, truth is marching, truth is marching) His day is marching on! (Truth is marching, truth is marching, truth is marching) 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 live to make men free, While God is marching on. Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on! Amen! Amen!
