Lyrics

Glory, glory, hallelujah Raised up in Kentucky In a cabin cold and bare Readinh by the fireside He got his learning there Earned his keep by splitting logs He grew so lean and strong He could fight against a bully Or could right a mighty wrong Young Abe Lincoln Loved all the people Oh, what a wondrous man was he What a plain, what a Humble man was he Then he went to Springfield Started practicing the law Folks began to know his name From Maine to Arkansas But when the people called him Into politics, he went Cause he had a date with destiny To be the President Young Abe Lincoln Loved all the people Oh, what a wondrous man was he And his name will remain in memory Glory, glory, hallelujah When he was elected O'er his country to preside Rich or poor, to everyone His door was open wide And when he felt the sorrow Of a nation in distress Whe he said will live forever In the Gettysburg Address Young Abe Lincoln Loved all the people Oh, what a wondrous man was he What a kind, what an Honest man was he That one dark and fateful night That history wil recall He went to the theater In his silk hat and his shawl And there a shot was fired by A scoundrel known as Booth And Abe Lincoln died because He stood for liberty and truth

Young Abe Lincoln Loved all the people Oh, what a wondrous man was he Gave his life so that People could be free Down in Washington There stands a monument today People come to honor him From near and far away And though it's nigh a century That he's been dead and gone His truth goes marching on
