A Stormy Night

by Byron KH Siemsen


I heard the sky dischordant thunder

Pealing to the West

And lightning caught my wonder

In fear the sky was dressed.


Turned I to hear the faintest song

Above this rising storm

So soft of you and yet as strong

As peace by fire warm.


Now my heart ne'er wavers on another rainy night

When raindrops pound and thunder sounds

A thousand clouds to flight

For in such a fear swept moment when most forget to pray

I hear your song more clearly and it my heart does stay.
