Source unknown

Pressed out of measure and pressed to all length;Pressed so intensely, it seems beyond strength;

Pressed in the body, and pressed in the soul;Pressed in the mind, till the dark surges roll.

Pressure by foes, and pressure by friends&md;Pressure on pressure, till life nearly ends.

Pressed into knowing no helper but God;Pressed into loving the staff and the rod.

Pressed into liberty where nothing clings;Pressed into faith for impossible things.

Pressed into tasting the joy of the Lord;Pressed into loving a Christlife outpoured.
