Text by Robert Lowry

My life flows on in endless song;
Above earth´s lamentation,
I hear the real, tho' far-off hymn
That hails a new creation.
Through all the tumult and the strife
I hear its music ringing,
It sounds an echo in my soul.
How can I keep from singing?

What if my joys and comforts die?
I know that truth is living.
What though the darkness 'round me folds?
Still truth its light is giving.
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?

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 from Christ makes fresh my heart,
A song of hope is springing.
All things are mine since truth I've found.
How can I keep from singing?
