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 has loosed the fateful lightening 
Of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on

Chorus:
Glory, glory, hallelujah
Glory, glory, hallelujah
Glory, glory, hallelujah
Our God 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 damps
I can read his righteous sentence 
By the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on

Chorus:

I have read a fiery gospel 
Writ in burnish'd rows of steel
As ye deal with my condemners 
So with you my grace shall deal
Let the hero, born of woman 
Crush the serpent with his heel
Since God is marching on

Chorus:

He has sounded form the trumpet 
That shall never call retreat
He is sifting 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


Chorus:

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

Chorus:
