WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN

Katharine Purvis (lyrics) and James Milton Black
With Additional Lyrics and Music by Peter Link

SAINTS!
SAINTS ARE A’COMIN’

SAINTS!
SAINTS ARE A’COMIN’

I CAN SEE
ALL THE SAINTS FROM PHILIPPI
ALL THE SAINTS FROM EPHESUS
SAINT JOHN THE BAPTIST
SAINT JOHN THE DIVINE

ALL THE SAINTS OF BUDDHA
MILAREPA THE SAINT OF TIBET
CONFUCIAN SAINTS AND JEWISH SAINTS
ARM IN ARM IN LINE

MAHATMA GHANDI
ZHANG ZHONGJING
PARAMAHANSA YOGANANDA
SAINT TUKARAM AND THE MUSLIM SAINTS
ALL THE SAINTS OF ALL MANKIND

WALKIN’ IN STEP WITH HINDU SAINTS
AND TAOIST SAINTS
AND SUFI SAINTS
WITH MR. LOUIS ARMSTRONG ON TRUMPET
LEADIN’ THE WAY

WALKIN’ IN STEP WITH THE HINDU SAINTS
AND TAOIST SAINTS
AND SUFI SAINTS
WITH MR. LOUIS ARMSTRONG BEFORE THEM
BLOWIN’ HIS HORN
AND NONE GET LEFT BEHIND

THEY ARE TRAVELING IN THE FOOTSTEPS
OF THOSE WHO’VE GONE BEFORE
THEY WILL ALL BE REUNITED
ON A NEW AND SUNLIT SHORE

THERE IS HOPE THAT GOES BEFORE THEM
AND ITS BANNERS FILL THE SKY
WITH A THOUSAND MILLION FOOTSTEPS
ECHOING ON HIGH
AND OH LORD I WANT TO BE IN THAT NUMBER
I GOT TO BE THERE

WHEN THE
WHEN THE
WHEN THE
WHEN THE

OH WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN
WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN
OH LORD I WANT TO BE IN THAT NUMBER
WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN

AND WHEN THE SUN BEGINS TO SHINE
WHEN THE SUN BEGINS TO SHINE
OH LORD I WANT TO BE IN THAT NUMBER
WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN

OH ON THAT HALLELUJAH DAY
YES ON THAT HALLELUJAH DAY
OH LORD I WANT TO BE IN THAT NUMBER
WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN

AND WHEN THE REVELATION COMES
YEAH WHEN THAT REVELATION COMES
OH LORD I WANT TO BE IN THAT NUMBER
WHEN THE REVELATION COMES

OH WHEN THE TRUMPET SOUNDS THE CALL
OH WHEN LOUIS ARMSTRONG SOUNDS THAT CALL
OH LORD I WANT TO BE IN THAT NUMBER
WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN

OH, WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN
OH, WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN
LORD, HOW I WANT TO BE IN THAT NUMBER
WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN

OH, WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN
OH, WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN
LORD, HOW I WANT TO BE IN THAT NUMBER
WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN

SAINTS!
SAINTS ARE A’COMIN’
SAINTS!
SAINTS ARE A’COMIN’

SAINTS!
SAINTS ARE A’COMIN’
SAINTS!
SAINTS ARE A’COMIN’

SAINTS! (SAINTS!)
SAINTS ARE A’COMIN’
SAINTS! (SAINTS!)
SAINTS ARE A’COMIN’

SAINTS!
SAINTS ARE A’COMIN’
