Representative Text

1 Press on, press on, O pilgrim,
Rejoicing in the Lord;
Believing in His promise,
And trusting in His word;
Fear not! For He is with us,
Whate’er the cross we bear;
And soon beyond the swelling tide,
We’ll gather over there!

Refrain:
Gather over there!
Gather over there!
And soon beyond the swelling tide,
We’ll gather over there!

2 Press on, press on, O pilgrim,
Along the heavenly way;
Remember, God commands us
To watch, and work, and pray;
He bids us all be faithful,
And cast on Him our care;
And soon beyond the swelling tide,
We’ll gather over there! [Refrain]

3 Press on, press on, O pilgrim,
Tho’ clouds and storms may rise;
The Light that never faileth
Shines brightly in the skies:
Press on where crowns await us,
In yonder mansions fair;
And soon beyond the swelling tide,
We’ll gather over there! [Refrain]
