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 have read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;

His day is marching on.-Cho.
3 I have read a fiery gospel, writ in burnish'd rows of steel;

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.-Cho.
4 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-Cho.
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,
While God is marching on.—Cho. Amen.

3 When wilt Thou save the people?

O God of mercy, when? The people, Lord, the people,

Not thrones and crowns, but men; God save the people! Thine they are, Thy children, as Thine angels fair, From vice, oppression, and despair, God save the people! Amen.
