“Battle Hymn of the Republic”

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 watchfires
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. [Chorus]

He has sounded forth the trumpet
That shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men
Before His judgement seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him;
Be jubilant, my feet;
Our God is marching on. [Chorus]

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]

    I was in Ohio, visiting family and on my way to Mexico to see more family. I turned on the news and thought it was a movie then realized it happened. It took 45 minutes before I was calm enough to call people and tell them to fill every gas tank and buy food enough for a week. Stock up on ammo, as well. then I sat down and cried. this was one more failed attempt by the dnc–who invited in the snakes–to take over. Terrorists are called snakes, Satan, by anti-terrorism Muslims because that’s what they are, demonic, strike from behind, cowards.
