Lyrics as sung by Detroit Mass Choir

"O courage my soul
and let us carry on.
For the night is dark,
and I am far from home.
Thanks be to GOD
The morning light appears.

The storm is passing over.
The storm is passing over.
The storm is passing over,
Hallelu....

Halelujah
Ha-le-lu-jah
The storm is passing over
Hallelu..."

The orginal lyrics by Charles A. Tindley (1905), are more extensive.

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
