"How Can I Keep from Singing?" composed by Robert Wadsworth Lowry, in a ringing arrangement by Karen P. Thomas.
My life flows on in endless song above earth’s lamentation,
I hear the real, though far-off hymn that hails a new creation.
Through all the tumult and the strife I hear the music ringing,
it sounds an echo in my soul. How can I keep from singing?
What though the tempest loudly roars, I hear 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 heav’n and earth, how can I keep from singing?
