Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Press onward, press onward, and trusting the Lord,
Remember the promise proclaim'd in His word;
He guideth the foot-steps, directeth the way
Of all who confess Him, believe, and obey.

Chorus:
Believe and obey, believe and obey;
The Master is calling, no longer delay:
The light of His mercy shines bright on the way
Of all who confess Him, believe, and obey.

2 Press onward, press onward, if you would secure
The rest of the faithful, abiding and sure;
The gift of salvation is offer'd today
To all who confess Him, believe, and obey. [Chorus]

3 Press onward, press onward, your courage renew;
The prize is before you, the crown is in view,
His love is so boundless, He'll never say nay,
To those who confess Him, believe, and obey. [Chorus]
