How can I keep from singing

leave a comment »

My life flows on in endless song,
Above earth’s lamentation.
I hear the real though far-off hymn,
That hails a new creation.

No storm can shake my inmost calm,
While to that rock I’m clinging,
It sounds an echo in my soul,
How can I keep from singing?

What though the tempest round me roars,
I know the truth, it liveth,
What though the darkness round me close,
Songs in the night it giveth.

No storm can shake my inmost calm,
While to that rock I’m clinging,
Since love is lord of heaven and earth,
How can I keep from singing?

I lift my eyes, the cloud grows thin;
I see the blue above it;
And day by day this pathway smooths,
Since first I learned to love it.

The peace of Christ makes fresh my heart,
A fountain ever springing;
All things are mine since I am his,
How can I keep from singing?
Singing?
Singing?
