Audrey Assad - How Can I Keep From Singing Lyrics

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 that music ringing.
It finds an echo in my soul.
How can I keep from singing?

What though my joys and comforts die?
I know 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 heaven and earth
How can I keep from singing?

I lift my eyes, the cloud grows thin
I see the blue above it
And day by day this pathway smooths,
Since first I learned to love it,

The peace of Christ makes fresh my heart
A fountain ever springing!
For all things are mine since I am his!
How can I keep from singing?

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?

  32. FensaQueensaPansa

    Tangs for the video my ticket tic me

  33. Joseph Messner


  34. Eamon McCourt

    Just me singing. “Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead and ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, who has made us into a kingdom, priests for his God and Father, to him be glory and power forever [and ever]. Amen. Behold, he is coming amid the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him. All the peoples of the earth will lament him. Yes. Amen. “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “the one who is and who was and who is to come, the almighty.” Revelation‬ ‭1:4-8‬

    Our Lenten journey - Holy Thursday: God is not dead, He is alive! Maybe seems like a strange way to begin the Pascal Triduum. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, who has made us into a kingdom, priests for his God and Father, to him be glory and power forever [and ever]. Amen. He is not dead if we are living in Him and He in us. He is dead if we are doing nothing with it. We are all living in the Kingdom of God, He died so we may live and live to glorify Him. He gave us a world to enjoy but also to use it to bring Him glory and not ourselves. If we are after our own pursuits and not His then think about why are you here? This vehicle I am in will pass away but not my spirit, John recognized that and only sought to glorify God. Live your life to glorify God and bring others with you.

    Dear Father, it has been an interesting lent this year, a lot of introspection going on. I am thankful for walking with You and for You to show me my faults and my gifts. I am thankful that You are not dead in me and are very much alive. Help us see ourselves in the Pascal Triduum and help us grow deeper in love with You. To God be the glory for ever and ever, Amen.

    Mary, Mother of the Christ Child, pray for us. Thank You!

    Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4b

    Blessed from Brazil

  62. Jerry Hamm

    I first heard this song many years ago, when a client of mine offered a copy of their album, vinyl, to me as a token of her appreciation for a job she considered well done.
    I've lost track of her, and her, which I believe was called The Gathering.
    Still have the album, still cherish the song and the memories it provides.

  63. Stephen Hare

    So incredibly beautiful and encouraging. Thankful to the Lord for your gift and ministry :)

  64. Hello Fellow

    There is a certain touch of enya .and I love enya songs some of the best songs ever composed ....anyways love this songs..😍😍

  65. Ben Carlo Gallevo

    I remember Libera's version of this.

  66. Damon Miller

    This song has really helped me

  67. Roo

    I wish I could find the instrumental of this version to make my own cover.
    So good!

    A. R.

    Roo right?!

  68. Michael Radigan

    the sacred hearts of Jesus and Mary (remember how much Jesus loves and honors His Mother, who is the Church incarnate, where we can take comfort and sing within?) are blessed by this beautiful Quaker song, who, just like Catholics, were persecuted in England and here...everyone is welcome home in Christ's true Church, where the angels and saints cannot keep from singing....just ask Chiara Badano, or Pier Giorgio Frassetti, or Miguel Pro))

  69. Karen Schnugh

    Please, please, please do more old hymns!!!

    It's wonderful to hear newer songs.... but also, there are many who simply want to sing along to old hymns, with their deep words, and do not enjoy all the other artists who do those hymns. So much better with a clear voice like yours. 🤗 .

    I really think there is great value in getting old hymns (lots of them) out there... but with a better musical arrangement and more angelic voices. 🙄


    New arrangements can lend a beloved old song a different perspective, as well. The version of this hymn I loved the most is almost a capella with a solo male vocalist; it has an ethereal atmosphere. This rendition has more of a martial tone, a confident, bold, victorious spirit -- 'Onward, Christian Soldiers' comes to mind, with our faces set like flint. Inspiring!

    Tony Cokely Thank you

  98. Richard Curry

    This morning I remembered this song, and so using a phone, I looked for it on you tube, and listened to several versions before I found this one. What a blessing! I posted about it on my openbook facebook page, and then listened out loud with speakers. Then the tears came flowing, and I clicked the replay over and over. So cathartic! So beautiful. I love the video of rivers and forests and mountains and aerial views, and the lyrics swiveling and fading in and out at the ends, and the instrumentalists playing, and Audrey's voice gently and clearly calling our hearts. Such a technically wonderful, artistic video in service of a message so pure and inspiring. So sweet, so beautiful. Thank you so much. Muchissimas Gracias a Dios a Uds. (Much thanks to God for y'all). :)

  99. kenyon weber

    Wow! There are no words to express the beauty of this song!
