701. My Life Flows On

1 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.
Since love is Lord of heaven and earth,
how can I keep from singing?

2 Through all the tumult and the strife,
I hear that music ringing.
It sounds and echoes in my soul;
how can I keep from singing? [Refrain]

3 What though my joys and comforts die?
The Lord my Savior's living.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night he's giving. [Refrain]

4 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? [Refrain]
