When I was a child, I was very scared of thunderstorms. My mother taught me to sing the chorus of a song called “‘Till the Storm Passes By” to help calm me down. I used to hold out my hand, palm up, and imagine standing in the “hollow” of God’s hand as I sang the song. As I grew older, the song took on new meaning to me. I’m no longer frightened by thunderstorms, but there are many other “storms” in my life that have driven me to sing that song and remember that God is in control and I am safe in the hollow of His hand. May the lyrics of this song bless you as they have me.
‘Till the Storm Passes By By Mosie Lister
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 ‘till the storm passes by.
‘Till the storm passes over, ‘till the thunder sounds no more, ‘Till the clouds roll forever from the sky; Hold me fast, let me stand in the hollow of Thy hand, Keep me safe ‘till 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 the bright peaceful shore; In that land where the tempest, never comes, Lord, may I Dwell with Thee when the storm passes by.
