Description

For SATB choir, soloists, and piano. Sometimes we run across a piece that is just enchanting and this is one of those. A different tune than the one you know, with hints of Aaron Copland, apple trees and newly mown meadows. If you have a piano in your sanctuary, don't miss this one!

My life flows on, in endless song: 
Above earth's lamentation, 
I catch the sweet, tho' 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 heaven and earth, 
How can I keep from singing? 

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

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, 
While to that rock I'm clinging; 
Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth, 
How can I keep from singing?
