"When you walk through a storm" is the first line of the song You'll Never Walk Alone, which first appeared in the musical Carousel in 1945. This version was sung by Christine Johnson, who played Nettie Fowler, and the verse you're thinking of is this one:

When you walk through a storm,

Hold your head up high,

And don't be afraid of the dark.

At the end of a storm,

There's a golden sky,

And a sweet silver song of a lark.

Since 1945, the song has been covered over eighty times. In the UK, You'll Never Walk Alone was popularized by Liverpool Football Club, who adopted Gerry and the Pacemaker's 1963 recording of the song as their club anthem.  Other popular recordings of You'll Never Walk Alone include those by the following artists:

  • Frank Sinatra
  • Elvis Presley
  • Bob Dylan
  • Barbra Streisand
  • Doris Day
  • Tom Jones

The line 'When you walk through a storm' is the first line of the song 'You'll Never Walk Alone' which was sung by Frank Sinatra in the year 1945. The song had earlier been used in the musical 'Carousel' where it was sung by Christine Johnson and Jan Clayton. The song as well as the musical came at the time of World War II. Thus, many of the listeners were able to identify with the messsage that the song conveyed.

There were many covers that were performed over the years by a number of artists and the song has reached the Billboard charts repeatedly. In America today, this song has come to be synonymous with graduation day. Its use has been so widespread that in some places it is used as an anthem for sports teams while in the others it has also been sung to the peace keeping troops.
