In the dark of the midnight have I oft hid my face,
while the storm howls above me, and there's no hiding place;
'Mid the crash of the thunder, Precious Lord, hear my cry,
keep me safe til the storm passes by.
Many times Satan whispered, "There is no need to try,
for there's no end of sorrow, there's no hope by and by;"
But I know Thou art with me, and tomorrow I'll rise
where the storms never darken the skies.
When the long night has ended and the storms come no more,
let me stand in Thy presence, on that bright peaceful shore;
In that land where the tempest never comes, Lord, may I
dwell with Thee when the storm passes by.
'Til the storm passes over,
'Til the thunder sounds no more,
"Til the clouds roll forever from the sky;
Hold me fast, let me stand
in the hollow of Thy hand,
Keep me safe 'til the storm passes by.
We sang this song yesterday at church.
Verse two is so true to me.
Satan tries so hard to show me all the sorrows
of this life,
He tries so hard to show me my sin
and the wickedness of my heart...
(Like I didn't know that already).
Soon I find a little black cloud
floating over my head,
But if I turn the page on the story of my life
to the last page...
I'll see me...
standing in His presence on that bright peaceful shore.
In that land where the tempest never comes...
