Representative Text

1 Press on, press on, with eager joy,
The Christian race to run;
Be strong in Him whose name you bear,
The Lord’s anointed Son.

Press boldly on at His command,
Whose word can never fail;
Since He, the world has overcome,
Thro’ Him you shall prevail.

2 Let ev’ry weight be cast aside,
And each besetting sin,
With steadfast faith and firm resolve,
Press on the prize to win. [Refrain]

3 Press on, like those who, safely now,
Among the host above;
Have reach’d the goal for which they sought,
And won their crowns of love. [Refrain]

4 Press on, press on, O glorious hope,
The time will not be long,
When you shall join the ransom’d host,
And sing their victor-song. [Refrain]
