changes, happiness, focus

My life flows on in endless song; 
Above earth’s lamentation 
I hear the sweet though far off hymn 
That hails a 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? 

Through all the tumult and the strife 
I hear the music ringing; 
It finds an echo 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? 

What though my joys and comforts die? 
I know my soul still liveth; 
What though the darkness gather round! 
Songs in the night He 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?
