"JOHN SAW THE HOLY NUMBER
"

from “The Book of American Negro Spirituals”
by J. W. Johnson, J. R. Johnson, 1925

 

John saw.
Oh, John saw
John saw the holy number
Sitting on the golden altar

 Worthy, worthy is the Lamb
Is the Lamb, is the Lamb
Oh, Worthy, worthy is the Lamb
Sitting on the golden altar

 Mary wept and Martha cried
Martha, Martha cried
Oh, Weeping Mary weeps no more
Sitting on the golden altar
