I am the Light after the Storm

When all the skies look black to you

And fear creeps in your heart,

When everything you’ve worked for

Seems to fall and break apart,

When drenching rains beat down on you

And clouds around you swarm,

Remember I will always be

The light after the storm.


The trials that I send your way

Are sent so you will know

That I have an eternal plan

To help you stretch and grow.

Each storm will make you stronger

Though it might seem hard to bear.

I always will stay close to you

To hear your every prayer.


When darkness sweeps across the land,

There’s weeping through the night.

The cries of all my children

Yearn for glimpses of that Light.

So lift your heads up, children,

Turn and face the Eastern sky.

Your bridegroom is approaching!

Your redemption draweth nigh!
