How Can I Keep From Singing?

What’s the payoff for a cold, rainy spring?  A sunny warm day when the world bursts into bloom.  We’re having one of those today, and I wanted to share it with you.  Here are some photos quickly taken in my garden along with the words to one of my favorite hymns of praise, written in 1860 by American Baptist minister, Robert Wadsworth Lowrey and later revised by Pete Seeger.  I hope you enjoy.

Above earth’s lamentation

That hails the new creation

I hear the music ringing

How can I keep from singing?
