How Can I Keep From Singing Sheet Music

Piano Solo Sheet Music of the Favorite Christian Hymn, How Can I Keep From Singing?

The music for How Can I Keep From Singing was written by Robert Lowry in 1868, and published with the text:

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?

It's unclear if Robert Lowry also wrote the words, but as far as I know, these are the original lyrics.

This favorite Christian hymn is a favorite of religious people across the world. In this piano solo arrangment, Chas Hathaway seeks to capture the joy the song implies.
