Above Earth's lamentations
I hear the real though far-off hymn
That hails a new creation
Through all the tumult and the strife
I hear it's music ringing
It sounds an echo in my soul
How can I keep from singing?
I hear the truth - it liveth
And though the darkness round me close
Songs in the night - it giveth
No storm may 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??
