Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

102. Press toward the Mark

1 Ring out the word from Christ the Lord,
Our Captain in the skies,
To all the saved who have believed:
"Press toward the mark for the prize!"

Refrain:
Press toward the mark for the prize!
Press toward the mark for the prize!
Let us suffer with Him and the "Well done" win,
Press toward the mark for the prize!

2 He'll give the grace to win the race
To him who bravely tries;
for Jesus' sake the message take:
"Press toward the mark for the prize!" [Refrain]

3 Keep, then, the road: fight on for God,
Though enemies arise;
The Lord with thee thy strength shall be:
"Press toward the mark for the prize!" [Refrain]

4 Bear, then, the cross: count all things loss;
On Jesus fix your eyes;
Till Christ has come, till heav'n is won:
"Press toward the mark for the prize!" [Refrain]
