STORM NOW AND THEN

Bob Caldwell

All my dreams were shattered
And all that mattered was gone on the winds of sorrow.
Everything I had planned swept out of my hand
And I saw no hope for tomorrow.
With my heart near to breaking, I cried,
“Lord, I can’t make it by myself. I just can’t carry on.”
And with the storm at it’s darkest came His words,
“I’ll never leave you. You are loved.
Let my strength be your own.”

It takes a storm now and then
To remind me to depend – to depend upon the Lord
And to rest in His word.
For in the wind and the rain,
I learned to call on His name
And I thank Him in my song
It took a storm to make me strong.

When my feet are stumbling and my hopes are crumbling
The Lord is there a'guiding
He is peace. He is calm in the midst of the storm.
The Lord is there abiding.
He is grace. He is power. He is strength for each hour.
He is comfort and safety from all harm.
There is joy in my soul for the Lord has control,
And beneath are His everlasting arms

It takes a storm now and then
To remind me to depend – to depend upon the Lord
And to rest in His word.
For in the wind and the rain,
I learned to call on His name
And I thank Him in my song
It took a storm to make me strong.

Yes, I thank Him in my song.
It took a storm to make me strong.

  2. I have wanted to find this song for years. On occasion I hear it on BBN Christian radio, thought I figured out the title, searched for different words until today when I actually got to listen to the entire song & figured out another one or two possible titles, started an online search AGAIN & found it!! How & where do I get the music for it? You mention Mosie Lister but the name Bob Caldwell is on the lyrics. I need this for our Ladies Ensemble group at church. Thank you for your time.
