145. My Lord! What a Mourning

Refrain:
My Lord! what a mourning,
my Lord! what a mourning,
Yes, My Lord! what a mourning,
when the stars begin to fall.

1 You'll 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'll 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'll hear the Christian shout
to wake the nations underground
looking to my God’s right hand
When the stars begin to fall. [Refrain]
