How Can I Keep from Singing?

“How Can I Keep from Singing? performed at Baylor IFL’s Symposium on Faith and Culture. With gratitude to the Schola of St. Peter’s Catholic Student Center and Dr. Janya Martin. Arranged by Carlos Colón, who also plays the piano in this recording.

  1. My life flows on in endless song;

Above earth’s lamentation

I hear the sweet thought far off hymn

That hails a new creation.

Chorus: No storm can shake my inmost calm

While to the rock I’m clinging;

Since Christ is Lord of Heav’n and earth,

How can I keep from singing?

  • 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? (chorus)

  • What though my joys and comfort die?

The Lord my Savior liveth:

What thought the darkness gather round!

Songs in the night He giveth. (chorus)

  • 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)
