How Can I Keep From Singing (Traditional)

My Life Flows On In Endless Song
Above Earth's Lamentation,
I Hear The Real Though Far Off Hymn
That Hails A New Creation

Chorus:
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?

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?

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

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?
