Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Til the Storm Passes By (Mosie Lister)
This was my dad's favorite song. As he lay dying in March 2006, my sisters, mother and I sang this to him. The 3rd verse gave us great comfort:"When the long night has ended, and the storms come no more. Let me stand in Your presence on that bright, peaceful shore. In that land where the tempest never comes, Lord may I dwell with Thee 'til the storm passes by." As we sang the end of the chorus, we were able to release Dad into the loving arms of Jesus (...Hold him fast, let him stand, in the hollow of your hand, keep him safe 'til the storm passes by.") It was a special moment - a holy time. It a comfort to all of us and a testimony as we shared our experience with others
