Gee, an unanswered request from the very first year of Mudcat - requested over nine years ago. For the heck of it, I'm going to send an e-mail to the requester.

'Til The Storm Passes By
(Mosie Lister, 1958)

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.

'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.

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 storm never darkens 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.
