lyrics

My life flows on in endless song, above earth’s lamentation.
I catch the sweet, though far off hymn that hails a new creation.

No storm can shake my inmost calm while to that Rock I’m clinging.
Since love is Lord of heav’n and earth, how can I keep from singing?

Through all the tumult and the strife, I hear that 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 Savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round? Songs in the night they giveth.

The peace of Christ makes fresh my heart, a fountain ever springing!
All things are mine since I am God’s! How can I keep from singing?
