760. How Can I Keep from Singing

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

Refrain:
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 the music ringing.
It sounds and echoes in my soul;
How can I keep from singing? [Refrain]

3 What though the tempest round me roar,
I hear the truth, it liveth;
What though the darkness round me close,
Songs in the night it giveth. [Refrain]
