The tempest stopped, our doom has passed us by, 
Strong winds now die and leave the world at peace.
This storm has ended, dawning day draws nigh.

Through thunderous lightening, flashes in the sky, 
We weathered all the gales and dire caprice.
The tempest stopped, our doom has passed us by.

Flood waters drain away, the lanes soon dry,
And streams are waning as the rains decrease.
This storm has ended, dawning day draws nigh.

Expecting that the wrath would multiply
We laid us down and feared the world would cease.
The tempest stopped, our doom has passed us by.

The fates are good, we will not wonder why,
But dread is gone, and passions shall increase.
This storm has ended, dawning day draws nigh.

We lie abed and share a lover's sigh,
Caressing touches bring us sweet release.
The tempest stopped, our doom has passed us by,
This storm has ended, dawning day draws nigh.
