about

Moving is a sign of life: no movement usually means no life, that you’re either dead or an inanimate object. Like our ancestors and the famous people in this story, we modern folks also have to keep moving, progressing, growing and changing.—That’s living!

lyrics

Every one of God's children, since the beginning of time
Looked for a city that's only seen by faith
They had to live like gypsies, strangers to the world
Wandering without a resting place

Chorus:
They just had to keep moving
Had to keep moving on and on
They just had to keep moving
Till they got to the Heavenly Home

God told old man Noah, "Sky is gonna get dark…
Better get busy and build yourself an ark"
Father Abraham didn't know where he went
Lived by faith and pitched himself a tent

Chorus:
They just had to keep moving
Had to keep moving on and on
They just had to keep moving
Till they got to the Heavenly Home

Moses could have been a rich man, but he got the word from God
To lead his people out of Egypt land
The Pharaoh got mighty angry, but Moses didn't fear
Said to his people, "Let's get on outta here!"

Chorus:
They just had to keep moving
Had to keep moving on and on
They just had to keep moving
Till they got to his Heavenly Home

Chorus:
[And now just like them:]
We’ve just got to keep moving
Got to keep moving on and on [You can’t stop moving]
We just got to keep moving
Till we get to our Heavenly Home [We can’t stop now]
Till we get to our Heavenly Home [Eyes on the prize!]
Till we get to our Heavenly Home
