Representative Text

1 Press onward, Christian soldier, press onward to the prize!
Tho’ shadows deep may gather, and dismal clouds arise;
Sometime the rays of sunlight will pierce the deepest gloom,
And round thy rugged pathway
The flow’rs of peace shall bloom.

Refrain:
Press onward, onward,
The prize lies just beyond!
Press onward, onward,
Soon shall thy crown be won!
Press onward, onward!
Fear not, tho’ foes be strong;
Rejoice! for yours in glory
Shall be the victor’s song.

2 Press onward, Christian soldier, the Master knoweth best!
Thy way He hath appointed, and He will give thee rest;
His face must be reflected, His fire all dross consume,
Then, in His arms protected,
The flow’rs of peace shall bloom. [Refrain]

3 Press onward, Christian soldier, and guard thine armor strong!
The walls of sin are trembling, the fight will not be long;
The hosts of sin and darkness are marching to their doom,
Then in thy heart forever
The flow’rs of peace shall bloom. [Refrain]
