557. Press On

1 Press on, my brother, sister,
And face the deadly foe;
Through Jesus Christ we’ll conquer,
While trav’ling here below.

Refrain:
Press on, press on,
Says Christ, our loving Friend;
Press on, press on,
“I’m with thee to the end.”

2 Press on, and let thy failings
A blessing to thee prove;
No wave of care or sorrow
Thy trusting soul shall move. [Refrain]

3 Press on, though raging tempests
And fiery billows roll;
While crossing life’s rough rapids,
He’ll safely guide thy soul. [Refrain]

4 Press on, ’mid strong temptation,
Tell Satan he must flee;
In Jesus’ name resist him,
And vict’ry thine shall be. [Refrain]

5 Press on, forever trusting,
In faith believing, too;
In spite of doubt or feeling,
God’s word will take you through. [Refrain]

6 Press on to what’s before us,
Forgetting all the past;
The light of heav’n so glorious
Eternally shall last. [Refrain]
