1 I’m pressing on my way to glory,
The blood of Christ has saved my soul,
And yonder is the prize before me;
I’m pressing tow’rd the goal.

Refrain:
I’m pressing on,
I’m pressing on tow’rd the shining goal,

2 I’m pressing on my way to glory,
God’s will doth now my life control;
With angel-keepers hov’ring o’er me,
I’m pressing tow’rd the goal. [Refrain]

3 I’m pressing in the strength supplied me,
His strength He gives me as I run;
His precious blood has sanctified me,
And I am pressing on. [Refrain]
