How can I keep from singing?

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?

A friend shared this video a few months back and I wanted to pass it on, but forgot in all the craziness of the holidays and traveling and preparing to move! I hope you'll take a minute to check out this remarkable family and pray for the millions of children around the world that need loving homes, and then maybe pray about how you can help meet that need, either by fostering or adopting yourself, or by financially and prayerfully supporting other families going through the process. I have been blessed to watch many dear friends go through the process of bringing children to their forever homes and I praise the Lord for the willingness of so many to take that leap.
