Spiritual 'Notes'

Greetings Friends... (It is a very snowy but beautiful day here.)

In the aftermath of this very Historic and Close presidential election I wanted to share with you the Mormon Tabernacles rendition of the 'Battle Hymn of the Republic.'  I think that it has perhaps, as much relevance and meaning now as it did when it was written. At the inauguration of President Ronald Reagan he said  'The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is Americas Choir.' The lyrics are below the video.
 Enjoy!




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.
(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.
         
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 can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps:
His day is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His day is marching on.
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.
(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His Truth is marching on!
 
           (Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His Truth is marching on!
Amen  Amen

 
My Sincere prayer and hope is for peace and comfort for us all  on this day and always.
Nann
