O when the saints go marching in,
O when the saints go marching in,
I want to be in that number,
O when the saints go marching in.

O when they crown him King of Kings,
O when they crown him King of Kings,
I want to be in that number,
O when they crown him King of Kings.

And when they gather round the throne,
And when they gather round the throne,
I want to be in that number,
O when they gather round the throne.

And on that hallelujah day,
And on that hallelujah day,
I want to be in that number,
O on that hallelujah day.

DESCANT: Hallelu, hallelu,
On that hallelujah day,
I want to be in that number,
On that day.
