Press Forward, Saints

Hymns of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


1. Press forward, Saints, with steadfast faith in Christ,

With hope’s bright flame alight in heart and mind,

With love of God and love of all mankind.


Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

2. Press forward, feasting on the word of Christ.

Receive his name, rejoicing in his might.

Come unto God; find everlasting light.


Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

3. Press on, enduring in the ways of Christ.

His love proclaim thru days of mortal strife.

Thus saith our God: “Ye have eternal life!”


Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
