'Battle Hymn Of The Republic' David Phelps Live Performance

'Battle Hymn Of The Republic' David Phelps Live Performance

Contemporary Christian artist David Phelps worships the Lord with ‘The Battle Hymn Of The Republic.’ This classic hymn was written in 1861 by abolitionist Julia Ward Howe. The patriotic tune used music from the song "John Brown's Body." Julia heard the song played by one of the infantry troops on review and was inspired to change the lyrics.


“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, His truth is marching”

Today, tenor David Phelps is putting his own touch on this beloved hymn. David has been a staple in the Christian music world for decades. For 15 years, he served as a member of The Gaither Vocal Band. Now, David is performing an incredible solo rendition of ‘Battle Hymn Of The Republic.’

“Glory, glory, Hallelujah! Glory, glory, Hallelujah!
Glory, glory, Hallelujah! His truth is marching on”

Filmed at the Barn at the Phelps Farm, this live performance is full of love and praise for our King. As you sing these words, be reminded that there is no one as powerful or loving as our Lord in Heaven. That is reason to sing, indeed!

John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
