This is a poem that came out of the book Streams in the Desert by L. B. Cowman that was first published in 1925. I would highly recommend your looking into purchasing this book – in the updated edition, edited by James Reimann. The readings in Streams in the Desert are filled with encouragement for those who are in trials, afflictions, and turbulence. It has been a friend to me since 1999, and I drew on it extensively when I was going through the trials of depression. Hit “continue reading” for the poem.
The storm is your shelter from danger and sin,
And God Himself takes you for safety within;
The tempest with Him passes into deep calm,
And the roar of the winds is the sound of a psalm
Be glad and serene when the tempest clouds form;
God smiles on His child in the eye of the storm.
