Let Us All Press On

I hadn't realized the mention of Heavenly Father in this hymn until I happened to sing the bass line today. So I've changed that to "Heavenly Parents" and made other small inclusive changes.

1. Let us all press on in the work of the Lords,
That when life is o’er we may gain a reward;
In the fight for right let us wield a sword,
The mighty sword of truth.

 [Chorus] Fear not, though the enemy deride;
Courage, for the Lords are on our side.
We will heed not what the wicked may say,
But the Lords alone we will obey.

 [Chorus: Alto, Tenor, and Bass] Fear not, courage, though the enemy deride;
We must be victorious, for the Lords are on our side.
We’ll not fear the wicked nor give heed to what they say,
But the Lords, our Heav’nly Parents, them alone we will obey.

 2. We will not retreat, though our numbers may be few
When compared with the opposite host in view;
But an unseen pow’r will aid me and you
In the glorious cause of truth.

3. If we do what’s right we have no need to fear,
For the Lords, our helpers, will ever be near;
In the days of trial their Saints they will cheer,
And prosper the cause of truth.
