This song was written by Dan Burgess, and has been recorded by several artists, including Selah… the title song of their second album.

Dan Burgess has written several praise and worship songs that have been recorded by many artists.

Selah is a Contemporary Christian vocal trio that was originally formed by brother and sister, Todd and Nicol Smith (now Nicol Sponberg), along with friend, Allan Hall. The group quickly gained success with the release of their first album: Be Still My Soul. They quickly earned a reputation for being able to reveal the heart of any song they recorded, transforming old Christian hymns into a more modern style and with their powerful voices and beautiful harmonies. Todd and Nicol, who spent their childhood in Subsaharan Africa, brought many African elements to their songs as well; they are as comfortable singing in Kituba, as they are in English. Todd gives credit for his music career to his missionary upbringing: “I’ve been singing in front of people since I was three. My parents are missionaries. When we came back to the United States, we had to visit each church that sponsored us. That was a good training ground.”

This song is an encouragement for believers to keep going… to keep their eyes focused on Christ.
Bible Reference… Philippians 3:12-15

When the valley is deep… when the mountain is steep…
when the body is weary… when we stumble and fall…
when the choices are hard… when we’re battered and scarred…
when we’ve spent our resources… when we’ve given our all…

        CHORUS:
        In Jesus’ name, we press on. In Jesus’ name, we press on.
        Dear Lord, with the prize clear before our eyes,
        we find the strength to press on.
