"The Flame Passes On" as written by Billy Lee Smiley and Mark Stephen Gersmehl....
Fire on the arena floor
The swords are drawn,
Hear the lions roar

The coliseum laughs and shouts
And screams for more


They tried to crush this mutiny

In a crimson tide of history

But when people have seen
The truth that sets them free

The flame passes on,
The flame passes on and on

From the heart of the people
Comes love for the people

Love that is burning strong

Oh, from one to another

This dream of forever
The flame passes on



Because of them we know His Name

So let's lift the cross, and do the same

An unbroken line of believers
Building a human chain

And the flame passes on,
And the flame passes on

and on and on

From the heart of the people
Comes love for the people

Love that is burning strong

Oh, from one to another

This dream of forever...

The flame passes on


Oh, the light of ages illumines the pages

Words of an ancient song

Oh, faith is the fire
That burns ever higher

And the flame passes on



Mothers to sons,
Fathers to daughters - everyone

Pass it on

From the heart of the people
Comes love for the people

Love that is burning strong

Oh, from one to another

This dream of forever...

The flame passes on


Oh, the light of ages illumines the pages

Words of an ancient song

Oh, faith is the fire
That burns ever higher

And the flame passes on



Feel the flame in your heart
Then pass it on
