Glory Hallelujah. No. 1.

Ellsworth’s body lies mouldering in the dust,
Ellsworth’s body lies mouldering in the dust,
Ellsworth’s body lies mouldering in the dust,
As we go marching on.

He’s gone to be a soldier in the army of the Lord,
He’s gone to be a soldier in the army of the Lord,
He’s gone to be a soldier in the army of the Lord,
His soul is marching on.—

We mourn for the fallen one, we weep for the brave,
Who to this holy cause his noble life he gave;
Sadly, yet proudly, we shout forth thy name,
As we go marching on.—

Gird on the warrior’s armor, the battle ne’er give o’er,
March till the battered gates of Sumter shall appear;
Rest not by the way till you plant the Stars and Stripes
Where the traitors’ flag now waves.—

Ellsworth’s knapsack is strapped upon his back,
Ellsworth’s knapsack is strapped upon his back,
Ellsworth’s knapsack is strapped upon his back,
As we go marching on.—

We’ll hang Jeff Davis on a sour apple tree,
We’ll hang Jeff Davis on a sour apple tree,
We’ll hang Jeff Davis on a. sour apple tree,
As we go marching on.—

His pet lambs will meet him on the way,
His pet lambs will meet him on the way,
His pet lambs will meet him on the way,
As they go marching on.—

The Fire Zouaves are marching on their way,
The Fire Zouaves are marching on their way,
The Fire Zouaves are marching on their way,
For Ellsworth’s death to avenge.—

Now three rousing cheers for the Union,
Now three rousing cheers for the Union,
Now three rousing cheers for the Union,
As we go marching on.
