How Can I Keep From Singing

Lyrics & music by Robert Lowry


My life flows on in endless song
Above earth’s lamentation
I catch the real though far-off hymn
That hails a new creation

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?

Chorus: No storm can shake my inmost calm
While to that rock I’m clinging
Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth
How can I keep from singing?

What though my joys and comforts die
I know my Savior liveth
What though the darkness gather ’round
Songs in the night He giveth


The peace of Christ makes fresh my heart
A fountain ever springing
All things are mine since I am His
How can I keep from singing?

(Chorus x2)
