Refrain:
My Lord! what a morning;
my Lord! what a morning;
O my Lord! what a morning,
when the stars begin to fall,
when the stars begin to fall.

1 You will hear the trumpet sound
to wake the nations underground,
looking to my God's right hand,
when the stars begin to fall. [Refrain]

2 You will hear the sinner cry,
to wake the nations underground,
looking to my God's right hand,
when the stars begin to fall. [Refrain]

3 You will hear the Christian shout,
to wake the nations underground,
looking to my God's right hand,
when the stars begin to fall. [Refrain]

Text Information:

This spiritual reflects on Jesus’ saying about the endtimes as recorded in Matthew 24:29–30/Mark 13:24–26. It belongs to the slower, less common style of spirituals with long, sustained phrases and was among those popularized in concerts by the Fisk Jubilee Singers.
