766. Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory

1 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!
lory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

2 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 the righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;
His day is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
lory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

3 He has sounded forth his trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out all human hearts before his judgment seat;
O be swift, my soul, to answer him: be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
lory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

4 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 that all be free!
While God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
lory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.
