I've posted about the work of Maverick City Music three times before. And they recently released a new song with powerful lyrics. Written by Naomi Raine, Alton Eugene, and Benji Cowart, it is cleverly titled "The Story I'll Tell." Lyrics below:


The hour is dark and it’s hard to see

What you are doin’ here in the ruins

And where this will lead

Oh but I know that down through the years,

I’ll look on this moment, see your hand on it

And know you were here


And I’ll testify of the battles you’ve won

How you were my portion when there wasn’t enough

I'll sing a song of the seas that we crossed

The waters you parted, the waves that I walked


Oh, my God did not fail

Oh, it’s the story I’ll tell

Oh, I know it is well

Oh it's the story I’ll tell


Believing gets hard when options are few

When I can't see how you're moving

I know that you're proving you're the God that comes through

Oh, but I know that over the years, I’ll look back on this moment

And see your hand on it, and know you were here


All that is left is highest praises

So sing hallelujah to the Rock of Ages
