What about the lyrics of the song?
The lyrics of this song are apocalyptic, based on the apocalypse, and do not include a reference to the final judgment; the scriptures mentioning the sun and moon refer to their respective solar eclipses; the horn (of the Archangel Gabriel) is a declaration judgment. This hymn expresses the desire to go to heaven and depicts the saints marching through the Pearl Gate, so it is considered appropriate for funerals. In the tradition of New Orleans, Louisiana, it was used as a funeral march, called a “jazz funeral,” and as a funeral song during the parade carrying the casket to the cemetery. Today, few people consider it as religious music, but as disrespectful pop songs related to “dixie”.
