How Can I Keep From Singing

by Enya

Lyrics

My life goes on in endless song
Above earth´s lamentations,
I hear the real, though far-off hymn
That hails a new creation.

An inspiration for difficult times...
Faryl and Jon. What brilliance!
I see you have found the truth in Jesus Christ. Your music has navigated me through dark times. I am happy to say I am on board with you soul sister.

The answer: you can't.
Amazingly Beautiful.. <3..<3..<3.. < 3 . .
I sang this in choir and had a great solo at the beginning and that song keeps inspiring me everyday, especially the phrase "Above the tumult and the strife , I hear its music ringing. Since love is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing."
..<3... BEAUTIFUL..
GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE...
Great lyrics that inspired me to get up and dust myself off and keep on trying.
Heavenly voice

@ twheeler17.. . I heard a clip of Judy Collins rendition of this song and I have to say Enya did SO much better than she did. Enya's rendition carries more emotion, her voice is more angelic and younger sounding, and the music that backs her voice blends in perfectly together. Judy Collin cant compare with Enya period :) .

I love everything Enya has created
Very Nice. I suppose I'm nit picking again, But there are no vocal harmonies in this song.
not as good as martin sheen (yes, martin sheen) did on prairie home companion (npr) last fall, but his singing was for a cause. i like this, also.
love this...music in Heaven is like this i bet....
This song is a Christian hymn, written by American Baptist minister Robert Wadsworth Lowry in 1860.
