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]
