Lost In The Stars

Writer(s): Kurt Weill / Maxwell Anderson / arr. Axel Stordahl

Before Lord God made the sea or the land,
He held all the stars in the palm of his hand,
And they ran through his fingers like grains of sand,
And one little star fell alone.
Then the Lord God hunted through the wide night air
For the little dark star in the wind down there
And he stated and promised he’d take special care,
So it wouldn’t lost no more.
Now a man don’t mind if the stars get dim
And the clouds blow over and darken him,
So long as the Lord God watching over him,
Keeping track how it all goes on,
But I’ve been walking through the night and the day,
Till my eyes get weary and my head turns gray,
And sometimes it seems maybe God’s gone away,
Forgetting his promise and the words he’d say,
And we’re lost out here in the stars,
Lttle stars, big stars, glowing through the night.
And we’re lost out here in the stars,
Lttle stars, big stars, glowing through the night.
And we’re lost out here in the stars.
