The Battle Hymn of the Republic

On this day, November 18th, in 1861. The words to The Battle Hymn of the Republic came to Julia Ward Howe in a dream. The was an abolitionist and worked for women's suffrage. She lived to be 91 years old. She lost her mom when she was only five.


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.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
While God is marching on.
