1 When the sun refuse’s to shine,
When the sun refuse’s to shine,
Dear Lord I want to be in that number
When the sun refuse’s to shine.

When the saints go marching in,
When the saints go marching in;
Dear Lord I want to be in that number
When the saints go marching in.

2 When the moon turns into blood,
When the moon turns into blood,
Dear Lord I want to be in that number
When the moon turns into blood. [Refrain]

3 When we crown Him King of kings,
When we crown Him King of kings,
Dear Lord I want to be in that number
When we crown Him King of kings. [Refrain]

4 When they gather ‘round the throne,
When they gather ‘round the throne,
Dear Lord I want to be in that number
When they gather ‘round the throne. [Refrain]

5 While the happy ages roll,
While the happy ages roll,
Dear Lord I want to be in that number
While the happy ages roll. [Refrain]
