1. Courage my soul and let us journey on,
Though the night is dark it won't be very long.
Thanks be to God the morning light appears,
And the storm is passing over, Hallelujah!

Chorus. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
        The storm is passing over, Hallelujah!

2. Billows rolling high and thunder shakes the ground,
Lightnings flash and tempest all around,
Jesus walks the sea and calms the angry waves,
And the storm is passing over, Hallelujah!

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

4. Soon we shall reach the distant shining shore,
Free from all the storms, we'll rest forevermore.
Safe within the veil, we'll furl the riven sail,
And the storm is passing over, Hallelujah!
