On toward the goal! Press on

1
“On toward the goal!” Press on!
  Alone, yet unafraid;
He cut the path, who beckons thee,
  On then, and undismayed.
2
“On toward the goal!” Press on!
  The eyes that are a flame
Are watching thee, what then are men?
  What matter praise, or blame?
3
“On toward the goal!” Press on!
  Look not behind thee now,
When just ahead lies His “Well done,”
  And crowns await thy brow.
4
“On toward the goal!” Press on!
  Blind, deaf and sometimes dumb
Along the blood-marked, uphill way,
  Hard after Christ, press on!
