1. In the dark of the midnight have I oft hid my face,
While the storms howl 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.
2. Many times Satan whispered, "There is no use 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.
3. 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.
