How Can I Keep From Singing
How can I keep (how can I keep)

How can I keep from singing



My life flows on in endless song

Above the lamentation

I hear the sweet (I hear the sweet)

The far off hill (the far off hill)

That hails a new, a new creation



Through all the tumbled and the strife

I hear the music ringing

It finds an echo (echo)

In my soul (in my soul)

How can I keep from singing



The piece of Christ makes fresh my heart

A fountain ever springing

All things are mine since I am his

How can I keep from singing



Since Christ is Lord (since Christ is Lord)

Of heaven and earth (of heaven and earth)



How can I keep from singing
