​And The Story Goes On

This song is by Michael O'Brien and appears on the album Conviction (1996).

I heard the tale of a man
With love in His eyes and hope in His hands
I heard that He showed us the way
And lit up the dark

I heard that His kingdom had come
To mothers and daughters, fathers and sons
And to all those who followed His voice
He changed every heart

It's not just on pages of history
It's not simply chiseled in stone
It's kept in the depth of the soul

And the story goes on and it burns like a flame
Through the years and the tears and the trials
The story goes on and we carry His name
And it echoes across all the miles
We enter this life with a whimper and cry
Sometimes we falter, sometimes we fly
But the ultimate truth we can never deny
And forever the story goes on
Ooh-whoa, the story goes on, ah...

To some, He was more than their breath
They wouldn't deny Him in pain or in death
His name always stayed on their lips
And it's passed down to mine

So I'm following all those before me
And even long after I'm gone
The message of Christ will be heard

And the story goes on and it burns like a flame
Through the years and the tears and the trials
The story goes on and we carry His name
And it echoes across all the miles
We enter this life with a whimper and cry
Sometimes we falter, sometimes we fly
But there's an ultimate truth and it never will die
And forever the story goes on
Ooh-whoa, the story goes on, ah...

There's hope for the future
There's hope for the lost
There's always a soldier to carry the cross
'Cause the story is true
And the story is changing this world

And the story goes on and it burns like a flame
Through the years and the tears and the trials
The story goes on and we carry His name
And it echoes across all the miles
We enter this life with a whimper and cry
Sometimes we falter, sometimes we fly
But there's an ultimate truth and it never will die
And forever the story goes on
Ooh-whoa, the story goes on and on

And the story goes on
Forever and ever
And the story goes on
Forever and ever
And the story goes on
Forever and ever...
