PRESS ON

Katie Knopp

Remember Paul and Silas,
Bound in stocks and chains
Yet they sang a song of joy
In the midst of their pain
There was Daniel in the lion's den
The Hebrews in the fire
They all stood strong and suffered long
They trusted in God's power

It's in the midnight hour
When you're hanging by a thread
And you've cried all your tears
In all the prayers you've said
That's when Jesus comes a runnin'
And He takes you by the hand
Just hold on you can make it
Press on; morning's coming,
Press on.

Now if your heart's been broken
Like a shattered piece of glass
And you wonder if the pain you feel
Is ever gonna pass
And when the darkness surrounds you
It might seem to have no end
Just keep holding on; it won't be long
And you'll see the sun again.

It's in the midnight hour
When you're hanging by a thread
And you've cried all your tears
In all the prayers you've said
That's when Jesus comes a runnin'
And He takes you by the hand
Just hold on you can make it
Press on; morning's coming,
Press on.
