  • 02:47 Story Lyrics
    How Can I Keep from Singing

    my life goes on in endless song above earth's lamentation

    i hear the real thought far off hymn that hails the 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

     

    what though the tempest round me roar i hear the truth it liveth

    what 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

     

    what through the tumult and the strife i hear the music ringing

    it sounds and echoes in my soul 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

    Solstice Song

    i heard your voice upon the wind as northerly it came

    now i see your face again as you call out your name

    when i feel your frosty breath tears will fall like snow

    who may melt your heart of ice

    who may only know

     

    the musky scent of earth's decay hangs heavy on the breeze

    breezes turn to winds today and rock the very trees

    when you rage through rusty woods leaves will fall like rain

    who may calm your heart so cold

    who may only name

     

    when the ring around the moon lends beauty to the night

    planets circle round the sun and bask in borrowed light

    if a taste of spring should wake what winter white would quell 

    who may own the mystery

    who may only tell
