How Can I Keep From Singing

There is an endless song... echos in my heart
I hear the music ring.
And though the storms may come
I am holding on
To the rock I cling.

How can I keep from singing your praise?
How can I ever say enough?
How amazing is Your love!
How can I keep from shouting your name?
I know I am loved by the King
And it makes me want to sing!

I will lift my eyes in the darkest night

For I know my Savior lives

And I will walk with You knowing You'll see me through

And sing the songs You give.

I can sing in the troubled times
I can sing when I win
I can sing when I lose my step
and fall down again.
I can sing 'cause You pick me up
Sing 'cause you're there.
I can sing 'cause You hear me Lord
When I call to You in prayer.
I can sing with my last breath
Sing for I know
That I'll sing with the angels
And the saints around the throne.

Now, those of you who know me.... I really don't need a reason to sing.
I sing when I am happy
I sing when I am sad
I sing in class
I sing when I am painting
I sing when I am walking
I sing in the car
I sing.....

Thanking God for His gift of music today.
AND, thankful for wonderful Christian musicians like Chris Tomlin who make a difference in my life!!!!!

There you go again ... Choosing Joy.

It's just a part of who you are.

Love to "hear" you singing -- in your blog posts, in your painting, in your real-life hugs.

You rock.
