how can i keep from singing?

after spending a few hours with my friends paul and heidi yesterday, paul called me with one more thought. see, we'd talked a lot about the high failure rate in ministry - and particularly about how our own lives had been harmed by pastors who'd refused to stick to the straight and narrow - so his final thought, from an old quaker hymn, was quite touching:

when friends, from shame, are undefiled
how can i keep from singing?
