180. Oh, When the Saints Go Marching In

1 Oh, when the saints go marching in,
oh, when the saints go marching in,
O Lord, I want to be in that number
when the saints go marching in.

2 Oh, when the Lord in glory comes,
oh, when the Lord in glory comes,
O Lord, I want to be in that number
when the Lord in glory comes.

3 Oh, when the new world is revealed,
oh, when the new world is revealed,
O Lord, I want to be in that number
when the new world is revealed.

4 Oh, when they gather 'round the throne,
oh, when they gather 'round the throne,
O Lord, I want to be in that number
when they gather 'round the throne.

5 Oh, when they crown him King of kings,
oh, when they crown him King of kings,
O Lord, I want to be in that number
when they crown him King of kings.

6 And on the hallelujah day,
and on that hallelujah day,
O Lord, I want to be in that number
on that hallelujah day.
