My Lord, What a Morning

Representative Text

Refrain:
My Lord, what a morning;
My Lord, what a morning;
Oh, my Lord, what a morning,
When the stars begin to fall,
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
