Representative Text

1 Pressing on with Jesus to a better place,
Singing songs of joy, songs of praise and love;
Making known the wonders of his boundless grace,
Pressing on with Jesus to joys above.

Chorus:
We are pressing on
With the mighty One,
In the blessed footsteps of God’s holy Son;
Sing we of his love
As we homeward move;
In the path of glory we’re pressing on.

2 Pressing on with Jesus whose great love controls;
Minding naught behind, dreading naught before;
While his precious Spirit floods our happy souls,
Pressing on with Jesus to yonder shore. [Chorus]

3 Pressing on with Jesus, trusting him alone,
Marching in his light to our home above,
Where with earth’s redeemed ones, gathered round his throne,
We shall praise forever Redeeming Love. [Chorus]
