“God’s Truth Still Marches On”

My eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!

You will find her sowing seeds of love where grapes of wrath once poured.

May we, two or three together, raise God’s justice high once more:

God’s truth still marches on.

Glory, glory Hallelujah,

Glory, glory, Hallelujah,

Glory, glory, Hallelujah!

God’s truth still marches on.

 

I have read a fiery gospel of unmitigated love,

Of a Christ who is within, without, below, around, above.

Let me be the one who turns my cheek when push has come to shove:

God’s truth still marches on.

Refrain

 

Christ has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat

Bidding each of us to sit and serve at one another’s feet.

Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer, see the Christ in all I meet:

God’s truth still marches on.

Refrain

 

God is coming to the people on a tidal wave of peace,

Bringing wisdom to the mighty, that all needless strife may cease.

May we listen to each other, and by hearing find release:

God’s truth still marches on.

Refrain
