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. 

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
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 damps 
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps 
His day is marching on. 

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
His truth is marching on. 

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnish`d rows of steel, 
"As ye deal with my contemners, So with you my grace shall deal;" 
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel 
Since God is marching on. 

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
His truth is marching on. 

He has sounded forth 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. 

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
His truth is marching on. 

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. 

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
His truth is marching on. 

ln 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 die to make men free, 
While God is marching on. 

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! 
His truth is marching on
