On And On


On and on...
I'll keep believing,
On and on...
My faith's my rock!

On and on...
I wont stop searching,
To better my days...
Than the days I was not.

On and on...
Everyday there is a way made.
On and on...
With my hope that overflows.
And,
On and on...
Each step I take,
Moves me away....
From fears I've had to face,
With prayer...
To erase.

On and on...
I'll keep believing,
On and on...
My faith's my rock!
And,
On and on...
I wont stop searching,
To receive and give...
Of what it is I've got.

On and on...
Everyday there is a way made.
On and on...
With my hope that overflows.
On and on...
Each step I take,
Moves away fears...
To erase If I pray,
Everyday.

OH!
So on and on...
I'll keep believing,
On and on...
My faith's my rock!
And,
On and on...
I wont stop searching,
To better my days...
Than the days I was not.

On and on...
YES!
Everyday there is a way made.
On and on...
YES!
With my hope that overflows.
And,
On and on...
YES!
Each step I take,
Moves away any fears...
To erase If I pray,
Everyday.

On and on...
With faith I keep I will achieve.
And,
On and on...
With belief I will receive.

On and on...
With faith I keep I will achieve.
And,
On and on...
With belief I will receive.

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
