Bruce Springsteen How Can I Keep From Singing? Lyrics

Last updated: 01/30/2009 11:00:00 AM

My life goes on in endless song
Above earth's lamentation
I hear the real, though far off hymn
That hails the new creation

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

When tyrants tremble, sick with 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 in Heaven and Earth
How can I keep from singing?
