The road is long, the journey winding,
The night is cold and you’re so weary,
You can’t stop now, there is no going back,
Press on, press on, it’s not hope you lack.

The stones are rough, the stars are dying,
Your steps grow short, your burden heavy,
You can’t stop now, one way must you go,
Press on, press on, this truth you must know.

For though your muscles tremble and tears run down your face,
Still a fire flickers and keeps apace,
You are not alone, I am here for you,
Let me share your burden and journey with you too.

The night is dark but dawn is coming,
Wrap yourself warm and keep on breathing,
You can’t stop now, you wouldn’t want to,
Press on, press on, I am close to you.

You look behind you, the path has disappeared,
Ahead a light gleams, a new day dawns,
And still you journey one step at a time,
Press on, press on, higher you will climb.
