Well early in the morning, about the break of day
I ask the Lord, "Help me find the way!"
Help me find the way (help me find the way)
To the promised land (to the promised land)
This lonely body (this lonely body)
Needs a helping hand (needs a helping hand)
I ask the Lord (I ask the Lord) to help me please find the way
When the new day's a-dawning (day's a dawning)
I bow my head in prayer (I bow my head in prayer)
I pray to the Lord, "Won't you lead me there?"
Won't you guide me safely (guide me)
To the Golden Stair (Golden Stair)?
Won't you let this body your burden share?
I pray to the Lord, "Won't you lead me please, lead me there?"
When the judgment comes to find the world in shame
When the trumpet blows won't you call my name (won't you call my name)?
When the thunder rolls and the heavens rain
When the sun turns black, never shine again (never shine again)
When the trumpet blows, won't you call me please, call my name!
