O When the Saints go Marching In

This hymn was adapted from a song by Katharine Purvis (d 1909).

The tune is often played in jazz-style, and used by marching bands etc, although the original lyrics are darker than many people realise. For this reason, some people add different verses, eg "O when the kids begin to sing".

Lyrics:

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.

And when the sun refuse to shine
And when the sun refuse to shine
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the sun refuse to shine.

And when the moon turns red with blood
And when the moon turns red with blood
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the moon turns red with blood.

And when the revelation comes,
Oh when the revelation comes,
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the revelation comes.

Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call
Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the trumpet sounds its call.

Oh, when the band begins to play,
Oh, when the band begins to play,
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the band begins to play.

Some say this world of trouble,
Is the only one we need,
But I'm waiting for that morning,
When the new world is revealed.
