The Wonderful Morning
By Fenton Johnson
From “Two Negro Spirituals”

WHEN it is morning in the cornfield
I am to go and meet my Jesus
      Riding on His white horse.
When it is morning in the cornfield
I am to be there in my glory.        5
      Shout, my brethren! Shout, my sisters!
I am to meet the King of Morning
      Way down in the cornfield.
