How Can I Keep From Singing? 

by "Pauline T", first published as lyric, "Always Rejoicing" in the New York Observer in 1868. Music by Robert Wadsworth Lowry 
lyric adapted by Andrew Calhoun, recorded on Grapevine
Guitar tablature available below, newly arranged in key of D with melodic guitar break. 

My life flows on in endless song, 
Above earth's lamentation; 
I hear the sweet, though far-off hymn, 
That hails the new creation. 
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? 

What though the tempest loudly roars, 
I hear the Word, it liveth; 
What though the darkness round me close, 
Songs in the night it giveth. 
No storm can shake my inmost calm, 
While to the rock I'm clinging; 
Since love's the rule of heaven and earth, 
How can I keep from singing? 

I lift my eyes, the cloud removes, 
I see the blue above it; 
And day by day this pathway smooths, 
Since first I learned to love it. 
Thy song of peace makes fresh my heart, 
A fountain ever springing; 
All things are mine since I am thine, 
How can I keep from singing?
