Press On

Verse 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.

Verse 2:
Press on, press on, O pilgrim,
Along the heav’nly 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.

Verse 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.

F.J.C./Ira D. Sankey
