„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.“

—  Julia Ward Howe

Published version, in the Atlantic Monthly (February 1862)
In the whiteness of the lilies he was born across the sea,
With a glory in his bosom that shines out on you and me,
As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
Our God is marching on.

He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.“

He hath loosed the fateful lightnings of his terrible swift sword,
His truth is marching on.
