Bob Filoramo: My CDs

Press On

(words and music by Bob Filoramo)
A song written for a youth group as an exhortation to persevere in life and have eyes fixed on the “Pearl of Great Price.” The song paints a picture of a man who has completed his journey through life and arrived at his ultimate destination—the throne room of God, meeting the Father, with Jesus at his side. He is welcomed into eternal life with a dance from his Father and cheers from the angels and saints. This picture gives me inspiration as I live my life.

Lyrics

For the man who follows Jesus all the days of his life, picks up his cross and walks with his God, a glorious inheritance awaits him at the end where he will see and know his true Father, and the pearl of great price is in his hand.

So as for me I will press on in running the race with my eyes fixed on Jesus who inspires and perfects my faith, I will fight the good fight with all my heart and soul ‘til the day that I’m with Jesus, the day I’m finally home, the day that I have won crown.

He will approach the throne of his Father with Jesus at his side, the Father will rise and say, "Welcome home! You’re a good and faithful servant, come home and take your reward. The battle’s done come and take your rest. Stay with me for evermore".

So as for me I will press on in running the race with my eyes fixed on Jesus who inspires and perfects my faith, I will fight the good fight with all my heart and soul ‘til the day that I’m with Jesus, the day I’m finally home, the day that I have won the crown.

And the heavens will resound with a thunder of praise, the Angels and the Saints will should for joy. And the Father will dance for his son has come home. Another warrior returns from the fight. Another victory for the Lamb of God.

So as for me I will press on in running the race with my eyes fixed on Jesus who inspires and perfects my faith, I will fight the good fight with all my heart and soul ‘til the day that I’m with Jesus, the day I’m finally home, the day that I have won the crown.

So as for me I will press on in running the race with my eyes fixed on Jesus who inspires and perfects my faith, I will fight the good fight with all my heart and soul ‘til the day that I’m with Jesus, the day I’m finally home, the day that I have won the crown.
