Peace Amid the Storm

When I hear rolling thunder crash
And see the vivid lightning flash,
I try to cover up my eyes,
As I feel the awful panic rise.

I know that God is over all,
And that He hears my desperate call,
But still the frightful lightning flares -
"Why doesn't God answer my prayers?"

Perhaps I am not praying right -
I need deliverance from this fright.
"Lord, free me from this dread alarm,
And fill me with Your quiet calm,
Surround me with Your love so warm,
And give me peace AMID the storm!
