I Must Keep Pressing On

In life I have had my share of disappointments
fought battles, that I had no chance of winning
I have walked that road, paved with heartaches
many times Iíve wanted to restart the beginning

I have labored, to climb up the high mountains
when the next step, could send me falling down
It seemed my feet, just couldnít step any farther
when just a moment of rest could not be found

I must press on, when I feel like just giving up
because should I give up I will never get there
Thereís nothing in this world to turn back for
if things get hard, Iíll go to my knees in prayer

Oh, but let me tell you when this life is through
this journey here will be, well worth those miles
When we stand on the golden shore of Heaven
then we will forget all about these worldly trials

As we catch that first glimpse of our redeemer
as our gaze rest upon those scars made by man
What a wonderful day of rejoicing, that will be
to bow before him to kiss his nail scarred hand

Then every mile, every last trial and heartache
will make this earthy journey, worth the while
When we meet our blessed Savior face to face
and look on his face, to see a welcoming smile
