The complete lyrics for "Let the Saints Come Marching," with lyrics and music by Callaway, follow:

Let no one be forgotten
Let no one be left behind
Let our pray'rs be answered
And hope be ours to find
Brothers and sisters
Let the saints come marching in

Stronger than winds that swept us
Deeper than water's tide
Love is all around us
And it won't be denied
Brothers and sisters
Let the saints come marching in

Yes, let love come marching in today
With courage on our side
The ones that have forsaken us
They can run but they can't hide
Let the saints come marching
From all around this land
Let the saints come marching
Ev'ryone lending a helping hand A city lies in waiting
A people in despair
Where were all the leaders
When we needed someone there?
Brothers and sisters
Let the saints come marching in

Where are the homes they search for?
What will they find and when?
Believe there is an answer
And the city will rise again
Brothers and sisters
The city will rise again

Let this nation's heart and soul awaken
As we heed the call of our fallen city's song
Who, among us, has not been shaken?
Who can stand till all of us stand strong?

Let the saints come marching in
Let the saints come marching in
Oh, lord I want to be in that number
When the saints come marching in!
Let the saints come marching in!
