Lyrics by Eliza R Roxcy Snow, Music by George Careless, Arranged by Joan Lisonbee Sowards
Though deepening trials throng your way, Press on, press on, ye Saints of God. Ere long the resurrection day Will spread its life and truth abroad. Will spread its life and truth abroad. Lift up your hearts in praise to God; Let your rejoicings never cease. Though tribulations rage abroad, Christ says, "In me ye shall have peace." Christ says, "In me ye shall have peace."
Though outward ills await us here, The time, at longest, is not long Ere Jesus Christ will reappear, Surrounded by a glorious throng, Surrounded by a glorious throng.
This work is moving on apace, And great events are rolling forth; The kingdom of the latter days, The "little stone," must fill the earth, The "little stone," must fill the earth,
What though our rights have been assailed? What though by foes we've been despoiled? Jehovah's promise has not failed; Jehovah's purpose is not foiled, Jehovah's purpose is not foiled.
All glory to his holy name Who sends his faithful servants forth To prove the nations, to proclaim Salvation's tidings through the earth, Salvation's tidings through the earth.
