Julia Ward Howe 1819–1910
American Unitarian lay preacher 

  1. 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.
     
    ‘Battle Hymn of the Republic’ (1862)
