My Life Flows On (How Can I Keep from Singing)

The Faith We Sing Number 2212
Text: Robert Lowry, 1826-1899
Music: Robert Lowry
Tune: HOW CAN I KEEP FROM SINGING, Meter: 87.87 with Refrain

1. My life flows on in endless song,
above earth's lamentation.
I hear the clear, though faroff hymn
that hails a new creation.
Refrain:
No storm can shake my inmost calm
while to that Rock I'm clinging.
Since love is Lord of heaven and earth,
how can I keep from singing?

2. 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?
(Refrain)

3. What though my joys and comforts die?
I know my Savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night he giveth.
(Refrain)

4. 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?
(Refrain)
