Lyrics

Mine eyes have tseen 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.

[Refrain]
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watchfires of a hundred cricling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps
I can read His righteous sentence in the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on.
[Refrain]
In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
with a glory in His boson that transfigures you and me
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free
While God is marching on
[Refrain]
His truth is marching on!
