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.

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.

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 die to make men free!
While God is marching on.

  1. As a veteran I think it's funny to see all these staff NCO performing this beautifully. I say that because at several points all these men and women have angrily yelled at a junior enlisted for messing something up. Hard to picture them angry… that's part of the job though.

  2. Trolls hate my comments…..trolls hide my comments………….Battle hymn of the REPUBLIC,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,NOT THE DEMOCRACY, BUT THE REPUBLIC………….let that one set in. We are a REPUBLIC, not a democrcary. trolls will hide this for surre, trolls will burn in hadees for SURE. Christ still offers to save trolls………u can be free today. Christ is where it is at. Hide this trolls. he loves u trolls. He shall bruise my heal(foot), but I shall bruise his head(I shall KILL him). In a fair fight, Yaweh will defeat him in less than 1/10 of one second. He, and all his followers will go to Hadees forever. A fair fight is coming very, very soon. We live in an a very very special time. In this time, Yahweh and Yashua are restrained, and the fallen one(Lucifer, The Devil, Old Slew Foot), whatever you choose to call him, he will have strong control over earth and the unsaved masses. In this time, he has a very very strong control over this world, and it is now very evil. He will very soon announce his self as the one true god, and he will do this while sitting on the throne in the Temple, which is soon to be rebuilt in Israel. He will rule for a short time, and then Yashua(Jesus himself) shall show up, and Yashua will end it all with only the words from his mouth. Glorious times indeed!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. The left have no humour, they are grey people.. they destroy art and history and language.. and replace it with slavery.
    I respect all the Southerners that died in yr first civil war.
    They had honour and courage even if wrong on some fronts.
    This antifa blm Marxist crap shall find North and south United again.

  4. This is the BEST performance of the "Battle Hymn Of The Republic that I've EVER heard! Thanks to the United States Army Field Band and Choir for such a moving performance! Peace be with you, always.

  5. “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 die to make men free!”

    How can you not love America?
