Well, i'm pressin' on
Yes i'm pressin' on
Well, i'm pressin' on
To the higher callin' of my lord.
Well, i'm pressin' on
Well, i'm pressin' on
To the higher callin' of my lord.
Pressin' on, pressin' on
You know i'm pressin' on
To the higher callin' of my lord.

Many try to stop me, shake me up in my mind
Say ''Prove to me that he's the lord, show me a sign.''
What kind of sign they need when it all comes from within
When what's lost has been found, what's to come has already been.

I just keep pressin' on, pressin' on
Well, i'm pressin' on
To the higher callin' of my lord
Pressin' on, pressin' on
Oh i can't turn 'round pressin' on
To the higher callin' of my lord.

Shake the dust off your feet, don't look back
Nothin' new can hold you down, nothin' that you lack
Temptation's not an easy thing, Adam given the Devil reign
'Cause he sinned, i got no choice, it runs in my vein.

But i'm pressin' on, pressin' on
Oh yes i'm pressin' on
To the higher callin' of my lord.
Well, i'm pressin' on
Oh yes i'm pressin' on
Hmm, i'm pressin' on
Oh yes i'm pressin' on
Pressin' on, pressin' on
I'm pressin' on
To the higher callin' of my lord.  up
