Eva Cassidy - How Can I Keep From Singing? Lyrics




Mmm...

My life goes on in endless song
above earth's lamentations,
I hear the real, though far-off hymn
that hails a new creation.

Through all the tumult and the strife
I hear it's music ringing,
It sounds an echo in my soul.
How can I keep from singing?

Oh though the tempest loudly roars,
I hear the truth, it liveth.
Oh though the darkness 'round me close,
Songs in the night it giveth.

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?

When tyrants tremble in their fear
And hear their death knell ringing,
When friends rejoice both far and near
How can I keep from singing?

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?

My life goes on in endless song
Above earth's lamentations,
I hear the real, though far-off hymn
How can I keep from singing?

Lord, how can I keep from singing?
Oh, how can I keep from singing?

    This restores my belief in the human soul. How can she keep from singing? Indeed.

    Voice of an Angel right here.

    ML Champion

    Go look up this version by Liam O'Kane (he was one of the predominant singers with the group called, 'Libera'/St Phillip Boy's Choir from the UK). Should be filmed around 1992/1993 or so. Will absolutely raise the hair on your neck .He was about 14 when he did that.

  8. Anni Redfield

    I'd have killed to see her sing with Celtic Woman, if just once, that would have been heaven

  9. Peter Hockenhull

    wonderful soaring voice. poor arrangement. in my mind it's a quiet but powerful contemplative song/hymn. don't think that goes well with the arrangement. just saying

  10. The Diving Comedy

    my sweet Lord, all my hairs stood on its end when I first listened to it! Great voice

  11. Ken Burkham

    She has every element of a gospel service down to perfection.
    Call and response,
    Intensity then resolution.
    Just as perfect in the bar scene too

  12. Sam Samura

    _Great voice_

  13. patty smith

    what a tremendous blessing I have received today from hearing this song and listening to the Eva Cassidy Story on UTube. Can't wait to see her in heaven with Jesus and sing with her and the angels

  14. Wade Raney

    Beauty,brains,talent,sweet nature,all in one,with own backing voices,yet to myself,the most beautiful babe ever to live !!!!

  15. AnCaesar

    Just discovered this great song, and the sweet voice of this lady, incredible.

  16. Mark Sze Chai Chan

    My life flows on in endless song;
    Above earth's lamentation,
    I hear the sweet, tho' far-off hymn
    That hails a new creation;
    Thro' 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 tho' my joys and comforts die?
    The Lord my Saviour liveth;
    What tho' 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;
    All things are mine since I am his—
    How can I keep from singing?
