Bob Dylan’s “Pressing On”

Bob Dylan has always been one of my favorite musicians, and I have no clue what his beliefs are currently, but in 1980 he found God and put out a couple of pretty good Christian records: “Saved” and “Slow Train Coming.”  This particular song of his I first heard a few years ago when an artist I never heard of by the name of “John Doe” covered it for the soundtrack to the fictional dylan biopic “I’m Not There.”  The song is called “Pressing On” – one of my favorite Christian songs!

“PRESSING ON” by Bob Dylan

Well I’m pressing on
Yes, I’m pressing on
Well I’m pressing on
To the higher calling of my lord.

Many try to stop me, shake me up in my mind
Say, “Prove to me that He is Lord, show me a sign”
What kind of sign they need when it all come from within
When what’s lost has been found, what’s to come has already been ?

Well I’m pressing on
Yes, I’m pressing on
Well I’m pressing on
To the higher calling of my lord.

Shake the dust off of your feet, don’t look back
Nothing can hold you down, nothing that you lack
Temptation’s not an easy thing, Adam given the devil reign
Because he sinned I got no choice, it run in my vein.

Well I’m pressing on
Yes, I’m pressing on
Well I’m pressing on
To the higher calling of my lord.
