    Francis Collins sings "How Can I Keep From Singing" by Robert Wadsworth Lowry

    My life flows on in endless song;
    Above earth's lamentation
    I hear the sweet though far off hymn
    That hails a 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 my joys and comforts die?
    The Lord my Savior liveth;
    What though the darkness gather round!
    Songs in the night He giveth:
    No storm can shake my inmost calm
    While to that refuge clinging;
    Since Christ is Lord of Heav'n and earth,
    How can I keep from singing?

    I lift mine eyes; the cloud grows thin;
    I see the blue above it;
    And day by day this pathway smoothes
    Since first I learned to love it:
    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?
