Lyrics

Verse 1 Lord I have a heavy burden of all I've seen and know, it's more than I can handle But Your word is burning like a fire, shut up in my bones and I can't let it go And when I'm weary and overwrought, with so many battles left unfought Chorus 1 I think of Paul and Silas in the prison yard, I hear their song of freedom rising to the stars And when the Saints go marching in I wanna be one of them Verse 2 Lord it's all that I can carry and cannot leave behind, it all can overwhelm me But when I think of all who've gone before me and lived the faithful life Their courage compels me and when I'm weary and overwrought with so many battles left unfought Chorus 2 I think of Paul and Silas in the prison yard, I hear their song of freedom rising to the stars I see the shepherd Moses in the Pharaoh's court, I hear his call for freedom for the people of the Lord And when the Saints go marching in I wanna be one of them And when the Saints go marching in, I wanna to be one of them Bridge I see the long quiet walk along the underground railroad I see the slave awaken to the value of her soul I see the young missionary and the angry spear I see his family returning with no trace of fear I see the long hard shadows of Calcutta nights I see the sister standing by the dying man's side I see the young girl huddled on the brothel floor I see the man with a passion come and kicking down that door I see the Man of Sorrow and his long troubled road I see the world on his shoulders and my easy load Tag And when the Saints go marching in, I wanna to be one of them And when the Saints go marching in, I wanna to be one of them I wanna be one of them, I wanna be one of them, I wanna be one of them...
