Verse: G Bm C D G
[Bb] [Eb/Bb] [Bb]
Well I'm p[Bb]ressing on[Eb/Bb] [Bb]
I'm [Dm]pressing on
I'm [Eb]pressing [Bb]on
To the [Eb]higher [F]calling of my [Bb]Lord.
[Bb]Many try to [Dm]stop me, [Eb]shake me [F]up in my [Bb]mind,
Say,[Bb] "Prove to me [Dm]that He is [Eb]Lord, [F]show [Bb]me a sign."
[Bb]What kind of [Dm]sign they need when it [Eb]all come [F]from with[Bb]in,
When what's [Bb]lost has been [Dm]found, what's to[Eb] come has already [F]been?
I just keep P[Bb]ressing on ...
Shake the dust off of your feet, don't look back.
Nothing now can hold you down, nothing that you lack.
Temptation's not an easy thing, Adam given the devil reign
Because he sinned I got no choice, it run in my vein.
Additional third verse sung November 4, 1979 :
You know the adversary never sleeps - he is a roaring beast.
He always comes at the time that you expect him least.
And you know that he's responsible for death and pain and loss,
But we know we'll overcome him by the victory at the cross.
