Battle Song of the NFB
(or Glory, Glory Federation)

Copyright Joseph Huff and Floyd S. Field, 1969
(Tune:  Battle Hymn of the Republic)


Blind eyes have seen the vision of the Federation way;
New White Cane legislation brings the dawn of a new day;
The right of the blind to organize is truly here to stay;
Our Cause goes marching on.

Chorus:
Glory, Glory, Federation;
Glory, Glory, Federation;
Glory, Glory, Federation;
Our Cause goes marching on.

We have seen it in the actions of four hundred chapters strong;
Good leadership and courage have righted many wrongs;
Let's aid NFB's program and join in its Battle Song;
Our Cause goes marching on.

Chorus

tenBroek has sounded trumpet which shall never sound retreat;
We have sifted out the hearts of blind before our Judgment Seat;
Oh, be swift all blind to answer and be jubilant your feet;
Our Cause goes marching on.

Chorus

To aid the blind's long struggle we have formed the NFB;
To free them from their bondage of workshop and agency;
To give a hand to all the blind wherever they may be;
Our Cause goes marching on.

Chorus
