Subject: Who wrote Courage my soul?
From: Animaterra
Date: 17 Aug 98 - 04:02 PM

It's a hymn in the gospel tradition; almost sounds like a spiritual but I know it's composed. Who wrote it?

Now I know why it sounds traditional. Cyberhymnal says it was composed by Charles A. Tindley in 1905. This page will give you a list of all the familiar songs we've heard from him - Stand by Me, Leave It There, We'll Understand It Better By and By, and one called "I'll Overcome Some Day."

THE STORM IS PASSING OVER
(Charles A. Tindley)

O courage, my soul, and let us journey on,
For tho' the night is dark, it won't be very long.
O thanks be to God, the morning light appears,
And the storm is passing over, Hallelujah!

Refrain
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
The storm is passing over,
Hallelujah!

O billows rolling high, and thunder shakes the ground,
The lightnings flash, and tempest all around,
But Jesus walks the sea and calms the angry waves,
And the storm is passing over, Hallelujah!

Refrain

The stars have disappeared, and distant lights are dim,
My soul is filled with fears, the seas are breaking in.
I hear the Master cry, "Be not afraid, 'tis I,"
And the storm is passing over, Hallelujah!

Refrain

Now soon we shall reach the distant shining shore,
Then free from all the storms, we'll rest forevermore.
And safe within the veil, we'll furl the riven sail,
And the storm will all be over, Hallelujah!

Refrain


Words & Music: Charles A. Tindley, 1905

Wow, look at all those verses- I had learned about Charles Tindley (forgot all about my first post!) but not the last two verses- thanks!

I don't know if Bob Franke has recorded this, but he does a phenomanal live version of it .

Bob Franke might have been influenced by this, but his song is "Hallelujah, the Great Storm is Over" (Lift up your wings and fly) and is different though equally powerful. Here is the link: The Great Storm is Over
Blessings,

In the 70s a black gospel group called the Twenty-First Century Singers recorded a more contemporary version of this song. The words are the same. I haven't thought of this song in years.

It's a great one, and has been a staple for my group for, well, over 10 years! We sing the first, second and last verse as posted above.

I love this song.

I first heard it sometimes in the mid 1980s when two young girls who were friends of my daughter sang it for me. They sang "Encourage my soul". I interpreted that to mean in "plain English" "Give me courage".

Here is a link to a 1988 video of an African American choir singing that gospel song very much like I remember first hearing it. Note that the title of the video is "Encourage My Soul"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuOMg9vItSk
1988 Friendship Baptist Church, College Park, GA

**

Note that the title of that video is "Encourage My Soul". That title is also given for other video examples of that song.

Here is a hyperlink to a completely different song:

Encourage Yourself - Donald Lawrence

I'm posting that link because some people reading this thread might also like that song.

Here's a version, sung by Lillie Knauls, with the Gaither Homecoming, in the 1990's:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yME1UHnEVZQ

Take courage my soul, let us journey on
Though the night be dark, you know it won't be very long
Thanks be to God, you know the morning light appears.
You see, the storm is passing over, hallelu

Chorus:
Hallelujah (hallelu) Hallelujah (hallelu)
And the storm is passing over, hallelu.

Billows raging high, and there's darkness all around
I can see the lightning flashing, and the thunder shakes the ground
But you see, Jesus He's a-walking on the water, and He calms the raging sea
You see, the storm is bassing over, hallelu.

Chorus.

Subject: More Tindley, Please, Thank you
From: Haruo
Date: 23 Apr 11 - 04:47 AM

The 'Cat could use more Tindley. I only see about three of his texts here. Sometime soon, hopefully during Easter Season, I'm planning to sing his "Heaven's Christmas Tree" and "A Better Day Is Coming". At the Hymn Society convention last summer in B'ham, Jimmie Abbington gave a sectional on Tindley, and we sang maybe a dozen of his pieces; I was particularly taken by "There was Naaman the leper" with its lovely line "his sickness made him white".

Would it be better, do you suppose, to add more of his texts to this thread, or to start a new thread?

Haruo - a Tindley thread would be great - and if can give Google Book links, that would help a lot. Searches on Google Books seems to be spotty. Guess they haven't figured out how to read all the type faces.
Thanks, Chris

The United Methodists had a great page of Tindley sound clip links, here, drawing on the contents of Beams of Heaven, a book containing many of his songs, but the links don't work. The GIA page on a CD of the same title has some working links to short clips.

Will try to add more resources soon, in a dedicated Tindley thread.

Actually on the GIA CD maybe the title song is the only Tindley piece, I'm not sure.

Subject: Lyr Add: La ŝtormo preterpasas (Esperanto)
From: Haruo
Date: 10 May 11 - 02:21 AM

Here's my Esperanto version:

Firmu, anim'! Plu vojaĝadu ni.
Nigras la nokt', sed ne longdaŭros ĝi;
Dankon al Di', ekaperas la aŭror',
Kaj la ŝtormo preterpasas, Haleluja!
Haleluja! Haleluja!
La ŝtormo preterpasas, Haleluja!

Flusas ondar', kaj tondre tremas grund'
Fulmfrapas lum', kaj ĉie ŝtorminund'.
Mare marŝas Krist', pacigas ondojn li,
Kaj la ŝtormo preterpasas, Haleluja!
Haleluja! Haleluja!
La ŝtormo preterpasas, Haleluja!

La steloj malaperis, palas fora hel',
L' anim' de timo plenas, enrompas mara pel'.
La mastro krias, "Jen, ne timu, estas mi",
Kaj la ŝtormo baldaŭ pasos, Haleluja!
Haleluja! Haleluja!
La ŝtormo preterpasas, Haleluja!

Baldaŭ ni venos al la fora brila rand',
Post la ŝtormofin', ripoz' en ora land'.
Ŝirme de l' vual', mallevos ni la velon,
Kaj la ŝtormoj ĉiuj ĉesos, Haleluja!
Haleluja! Haleluja!
La ŝtormo preterpasas, Haleluja!
