Battle Hymn Of The Republic
by Julia Ward Howe | William Steffe | Klaus Kuehn

Chorus 1
Glory Glory hallelujah Glory Glory hallelujah
Glory Glory hallelujah His truth is marching on

Verse 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

Verse 2
He has sounded forth the trumpet
That shall never call retreat
He is sifting out the hearts of men
Before His judgment seat
O be swift my soul to answer Him
Be jubilant my feet
Our God is marching on

Verse 3
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 live to make men free
While God is marching on

Send forth your truth and your light o God
Cover the Nation with Praise

Prayer by Dutch Sheets
Lord, our nation is in a desperate place. We deserve the grapes of wrath spoken of in this song. We have turned away from you and worshiped the idols of pleasure, money, self and other religions. We mock You, Your Son and Your ways, calling evil good and good evil. We are a nation filled with violence, immorality, greed and unfaithfulness. Our schools refuse to acknowledge You as Creator and as a result, we have produced a generation of young people that search for identity through drugs, sex, gangs, even cutting and self-mutilation. God, our leaders have turned from You. We've denied our destiny and Godly heritage, refusing to acknowledge that You formed America for Your purposes. We've expelled You and Your laws from our schools, businesses, government and public places. But Lord, we believe that in wrath, You remember mercy and that mercy triumphs over judgment. So God, we cry out for your mercy and your love and grace. Please forgive us and send a great spiritual awakening to America. Lift the veil of darkness and deception off of us. Give us righteous leaders, God, and laws that honor you once again. Give us righteous leaders and laws once again. Send forth Your truth and light to America again. Send forth Your truth and light to America again. In Jesus' name, we pray.
