How Can I Keep From Singing? lyrics

My life goes on in endless song

Above earth's lamentation

I hear the real, though far off hymn

That hails the new creation


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


When tyrants tremble, sick with fear

And hear their death-knell ringing

When friends rejoice both far and near

How can I keep from singing?


No storm can shake my inmost calm

While to that rock I'm clinging

Since love is Lord in Heaven and Earth

How can I keep from singing?
