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

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
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.
