Someone may have done this long ago, but I've not found it. So here it is. Have fun this New Year.
^^
HOW CAN I KEEP FROM DRINKING?

My life flowed on in endless song
Of pain and lamentation
But a joyful sound above the throng
The call of sweet libation

Through all the tumult and the strife
That gets my soul a-sinking
The joy a dram confers in life
How can I keep from drinking?


Though doubting thoughts torment my soul
Oh, if my Savior liveth
There's none can shake what I well know      
The joy the bottle giveth.

No storm disturbs my inmost calm
When doubt sets me a-thinking
There's peace assured held in my palm
How can I keep from drinking?


I lift mine eyes, the cloud grows thin
I see the blue above it
Each passing day new joys begin
Since first I learned to love it

That gentle flow none can malign
A fountain ever springing
All things are fine since I am thine
How can I keep from drinking?

Is that yours, Steve? Neat one whether it is or not. It's based on

"How Can I Keep From Singing"

My life flows on in endless song;
Above earth's lamentation
I hear the sweet though far off hymn
That hails a new creation:
Through all the tumult and the strife
I hear the music ringing;
It finds an echo in my soul—
How can I keep from singing?

What though my joys and comforts die?
The Lord my Savior liveth;
What though the darkness gather round!
Songs in the night He giveth:
No storm can shake my inmost calm
While to that refuge clinging;
Since Christ is Lord of Heav'n and earth,
How can I keep from singing?

I lift mine eyes; the cloud grows thin;
I see the blue above it;
And day by day this pathway smoothes
Since first I learned to love it:
The peace of Christ makes fresh my heart,
A fountain ever springing:
All things are mine since I am His—
How can I keep from singing?

(Lyrics from the cyberhymnal)
