How Can I Keep from Singing? by Robert Lowry 6/9/19

June 9, 2019

My life flows on in endless song;

Above earth’s lamentation,
I hear the sweet, though far off hymn

That hails a new creation;
Through all the tumult and the strife

I hear the music ringing;
It finds an echo in my soul—

How can I keep from singing?
What though my joys and comforts die?

The Lord my Saviour liveth;
What though the darkness round me close?

Songs in the night He giveth.
No storm can shake my inmost calm

While to that refuge clinging;
Since Christ 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?
