Philip P. Bliss (1838–1876)


Rejoice, my soul, the trum­pet sounds,
And calls thee to the strife;
Forget the things that are be­hind,
And seek the crown of life.


Press on­ward, on­ward, oh, my soul,
Look up to Christ, thy Lord—
You fight, I’ll con­quer,
He hath said;
Trust in His faith­ful word.

A host of witness­es around,
Behold thee in the fight;
Keep on the path their feet have trod,
And keep the crown in sight.


Thy glo­ri­ous cap­tain from on high,
With joy looks down on thee,
You fight, I’ll con­quer, is His word,
I’ll give the vic­to­ry.
