'How Can I Keep From Singing' Annie Moses Band Performance

Listen to the Annie Moses Band’s beautiful performance of ‘How Can I Keep From Singing.’

Annie Moses Band is made up of seven ridiculously talented siblings. They can play a bunch of different kinds of instruments and sing all types of music. But where’d the entire family’s love of music come from?

The siblings’ great-grandma, Annie Moses, worked hard to barely afford some piano lessons for her daughter, Jane. Jane then did the same thing for her daughter, Robin, and stretched money for some music education. Robin ended up going to college for music and met her husband Bill. The two of them wrote plenty of beautiful songs together.

Bill and Robin raised their seven kids in a world full of music and God that led them to the Julliard School. They took a leap of faith about 20 years ago when they decided to step away from the classical music path and begin making their own music.

Since then, the family kept moving forward with over a dozen albums, a successful PBS special, and performances at both Carnegie Hall and The Grand ‘Ole Opry. After listening to their cover of ‘How Can I Keep From Singing,’ you won’t be surprised by their success.

‘How Can I Keep From Singing’ was originally composed by an American minister named Robert Lowry in the 1800s. The New York Observer published the hymn first in 1868 and titled it ‘Always Rejoicing.’ The name, ‘Pauline T’ received credit for that version.

Even though most Christians can quickly recognize the hymn nowadays, the tune didn’t become popular until the mid-1900s. Worshipers from earlier times truly missed out on these poetic lyrics.

No storm can shake my inmost calm,
While to that rock I´m clinging.
Since love is lord of heaven and earth
How can I keep from singing?

They shall abundantly utter the memory of your great goodness, and shall sing of your righteousness. The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. Psalms 145:7-9
