Always Singing

Recently, I was introduced to this beautiful hymn. I'd never heard it before, but the words resounded in my heart with a special depth and meaning. The printed words are the original, and the video clip is a slightly different version of it. Still, as a follow-up to yesterday's "Quote of the Day," I thought it was rather fitting. I want to share with you this lovely song…and I hope that you keep on singing this day!

How Can I Keep From Singing

"My life flows on in endless song;
Above earth's lamentation
I hear the sweet though far off hymn
That hails a new creation:
Through all the tumult and the strife
I hear the 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 He giveth:
No storm can shake my inmost calm
While to that refuge clinging;
Since Christ is Lord of Heav'n and earth,
How can I keep from singing?

I life mine eyes; the cloud grows thin;
I see the blue above it;
And day by day this pathway smoothes
Since first I learned to love it:
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?
