How Can I Keep from Singing?

$0.00$5.00

 

The title phrase gives the impression of a wide-eyed universalist anthem of feel-good hope. But a deeper look shows a hymn that recognizes both the struggles of life and the hope of faith in Christ. This Just Add People arrangement brings out the lament of the verses with a minor harmonization, switching to a major key when the refrain proclaims confidently: No storm can shake my inmost calm.”

1. My life flows on in endless song,
above earth’s lamentation.
I catch the sweet, though far-off hymn
that hails a new creation.

No storm can shake my inmost calm
while to that Rock I’m clinging.
Since Love is lord of heav’n 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?

No storm can shake my inmost calm…

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.

No storm can shake my inmost calm…

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?

No storm can shake my inmost calm…
