Press On

For those whose lives are linked to thee,
Whose hearts seek e’er true faith to see,
For allwho’d stumble if you should fall,
Stay faithful to the upward call.

When fears assail to turn thee gack,
When courage you most sorely lack,
Look onward, upward to thy King,
and from that glance thy heart can sing.

Be pressing onward for their sake,
And from thy God thy courage take.
For though thy struggles weigh thee down,
Thy perseverance wins thy crown.

So be found faithful for those you love;
Keep fixed thy heart on God Above;
And ne’ver look back tho’ the night be long
But look to Christ and still press on!
~Shelley Hendry
