My life flows on in endless song;
Above earth’s lamentation,
I hear the sweet, tho’ far-off hymn
That hails a new creation;
Thro’ all the tumult and the strife
I hear the music ringing;
It finds an echo in my soul—
How can I keep from singing?
Do you hear the sweet music? How appropriate to read these words in lamentation times…
The song titled How Can I Keep From Singing has several renditions including these from 1860 This is the one from 1860 (song story HERE and music HERE) and one a little more contemporary (HERE).
While the melodies and words are different, the message seems mighty similar. How Can We Keep From Singing?
Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit!
