Do you know how hard it is to find a version of this song that isn’t too ornate, and that doesn’t shy away from the implications of the original fifth verse?
Battle Hymn Of The Republic, Odetta
The fifth verse is nothing next to the sixth verse.
“As he died to make men Holy
Let us die to make men free.”
Is easy to say but hard to do, making them free of their mistaken ideas is, I’ve found, infinitely hard sometimes. Nice choice though.
Some idea. I spent a while looking for the proper version, the one that did the, I’m not sure if it is in the fifth verse. ‘As God died to make men holy, let us die to make men free.’
