Lyrics

I was down in the valley of the shadow of death
Where the passion for life drained like blood from my chest
And it took more than my will just to take a step
When the compass of hope was gone

In a silence so black that I wished for the blues
Every desperate prayer seemed like Heaven refused
And some days I found faith meant just tying my shoes
And it was all I could do to press on

Press on, mi amigo
Press on, mon ami
Walk on in the face of the mystery
Though the night hides the light through the darkness till dawn
Tie your shoes, my dear friend, and press on

Come on

On the ocean so lonesome I was not left alone
Had some heavyweight friends when my heart was a stone
And they carried the heartache and made it their own
When the currents of sorrow were strong

(And one said)
"I pray your memories will not drag you down
Not be anchors, but treasures of the love that you've found"
And His kind words turned hurt into comfort somehow
And a wind in my sails to press on

So press on, mi amigo
Press on, mon ami
Walk on in the face of the mystery
Though the night hides the light and the journey is long
Lean on me, my dear friend, and press on

Though the days seem like years
There may be giants in our fears
Ah, but they who sow in tears
They shall reap in joy
They shall run and leap for joy

So press on, mi amigo
Press on, mon ami
Walk on in the face of the mystery

Though the night hides the light and the journey is long
Lean on me, my dear friend

And press on, mi amigo
Press on, mon ami
Walk on in the face of the mystery
Though the night hides the light
And the journey is long

Tie your shoes, my dear friend
And press on
Press on
You've gotta walk on
You've gotta walk on

Well, I know it's a mystery
You gotta keep going
You gotta keep going
You gotta keep going

Get up, take my hand
We can make it together
Come on
