Version espaƱola

In darkest night, the song bird's call
Is in the garden ringing
The knowing stars my path alight
How can I keep from singing?

As dawn first glow bejewels the morn
The sun's full glory bringing
The waters softly flowing now
How can I keep from singing?

The Master calls us all to serve
And to this Cord I'm clinging
His smile, my heart near overflows
How can I keep from singing?

The sheltering branch protects us all
Though winds set it to swinging
This storm shall pass, the land renew
How can I keep from singing?

The House is strong, a sure refuge
Yet tears my eyes are stinging
Though birthed in pain, this child shall grow
How can I keep from singing?

O Lord Baha, from God's own arm
The Royal Falcon's winging
Bind up anew, my broken wings
How can I keep from singing?

How can I keep from singing, Lord?
I can not keep from singing,
Though tears of joy near break my voice
I shall go on in singing!

I shall go on in singing, Lord
I shall go on in singing
Though tears of joy near break my voice
I shall go on in singing!

We shall go on in singing, Lord
We shall go on in singing
Though tears of joy near break my voice
We shall go on in singing!
