“How Can I Keep From Singing?” is, perhaps, the second most well-known gospel hymn authored by Robert Lowry (1826-1899) — the first being “Shall We Gather at the River?”

Like Horatio Spafford’s “It Is Well With My Soul,” Lowry’s “How Can I Keep From Singing?” (also known as “Endless Song”) expresses confidence in the eternal promises of Christ in spite of temporal circumstances. Its first verse and refrain proclaim:

“My life flows on in endless song above earth’s lamentation; I catch the sweet, though far-off hymn, that hails a new creation. (Refrain): No storm can shake my inmost calm while to that Rock I’m clinging; since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing?”

Ideal as a prelude or offertory/communion anthem.
