My Lord is Near me all the Time

1 In the lightning flash across the sky His mighty pow’r I see, And I know if He can reign on high, His light can shine on me. Chorus:  I’ve seen it in the lightning, heard it in the thunder, And felt it in the rain; My Lord is near me all the time, My Lord is near me all the time. 2 When the thunder shakes the mighty hills And trembles ev’ry tree, Then I know a God so great and strong Can surely harbour me. 3  When refreshing showers cool the earth And sweep across the sea, Then His rainbow shines within my heart, His nearness comforts me.
This hymn was written by American Baptist poet and hymn-writer Barbara Fowler Gaultney (1935-1974).

It was first published in The Church Musician, a Baptist church music magazine, in 1960.

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website.

The song has three verses, each four lines long, and a four-line chorus which is repeated after each verse. A rough outline is:
1  In the lightning flash across the sky ...

Chorus:
I’ve seen it in the lightning, heard it in the thunder,
And felt it in the rain;
My Lord is near me all the time,
My Lord is near me all the time.

2  When the thunder shakes the mighty hills ...

3  When refreshing showers cool the earth
