Oh when the saints

Oh when the saints go marching in

Oh when the saints go marching in

I remember long ago
That gospel song
The march of the saints
And the end of time

Oh yes, i want to be in that number!
And walk with them

How many times
Did i play that
On my guitar, my flute
I can not remember

Oh yes, i’ll march with them

All saints!
What a feast

Lyrics

Oh, when the saints go marching in

Oh yes I want to be in that number
When the saints go marching in

Oh, when the drums begin to bang
Oh, when the stars fall from the sky
Oh, when the moon turns red with blood
Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call
Oh, when the horsemen begin to ride
Oh, when the fire begins to blaze

Oh, when the saints go marching in

 

The great litany of the saints

A prayer

Row the boat ashore

Michael row the boat ashore

Row the boat

Michael
Row the boat
Ashore

A negro spiritual
First noticed
During the American Civil War

Slaves, abandonned
By their masters
At St Helena Island

With many versions
And many traditions
A refrain known by many

Michel, row the boat ashore
Hallelujah!
Then you’ll hear the trumpet blow
Hallelujah!
Then you’ll hear the trumpet sound,
Hallelujah!
Trumpet sound the world around
Hallelujah!
Trumpet sound the jubilee
Hallelujah!
Trumpet sound for you and me
Hallelujah!

The crossing
Of the river Jordan
From slavery into freedom

Michael, archangel
Conductor of the souls
Of the deceased

And Jesus
Entering the waters
Of Baptism

Some versions
