781. My Life Flows On in Endless Song

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.

Refrain:
No storm can shake my inmost calm
While to that refuge clinging;
Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth,
How can I keep from singing?

2 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? (Refrain)

3 What though my joys and comforts die?
The Lord my Savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night He giveth. (Refrain)

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? (Refrain)
