The Battle Hymn Of The Republic

Battle Hymn Of The Republic

Verse 1:

  G
Mine eyes have see the glory

Of the coming of The Lord

  C
He is trampling out the vintage
  G
Where the grapes of wrath are stored
  G
He hath loosed the fatefull lightning
  B7 Em
Of His terrible swift sword
  Am D7 G
His truth is marching on

Chorus

Verse 2:

  G
I have seen Him in the watchfires

Of a hundred circling camps

  C
They have builded Him an alter
  G
In the evening dews and damps
  G
I can read His righteous sentence
  B7 Em
By the dim and flaring lamps
  Am D7 G
His day is marching on

Verse 3:

  G
I have read a fiery Gospel

Writ in burnished rows of steal

  C
As ye deal with My contemners
  G
So with you My grace shall deal
  G
Let the hero born of woman
  B7 Em
Crush the serpent with His heel
  Am D7 G
Since God is marching on

Chorus

Verse 4:

  G
He has sounded forth the trumpet

That shall never call retreat

  C
He is sifting out the hearts of men
  G
Be - fore His judgment seat
  G
Oh, be swift my soul, to answer Him
  B7 Em
Be jubilant, my feet
  Am D7 G
Our God is marching on

Verse 5:

  G
In the beauty of the lilies

Christ was born across the sea

  C
With a glory in His bosom
  G
That trans - figures you and me
  G
As He died to make men holy
  B7 Em
Let us live to make men free
  Am D7 G
While God is marching on

Chorus

G
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
C G
Glory! Glory! Halle - lujah!
G B7 Em
Glory! Glory! Halle - lu - ja!
  Am D7 G
His truth is marching on
