How Can I Keep From Singing?

My life flows on in endless song,
Above earth's lamentation.
I hear the real, though far-off, hymn,
That hails a new creation.
Through all the tumult and the strife
I hear the music ringing;
It sounds an echo in my soul—
How can I keep from singing?

I lift my eyes, the cloud grows thin;
I see the blue above it;
And day by day this pathway smooths,
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?

I love this hymn. No, that's not strong enough. I passionately adore it. Keep an eye out for what it started... it'll be here soon enough :mysterious: ;)
Until then - I am your friendly blogger...

I love the lyrics! I don't think I have ever heard this before.
