Comments for this piece:
From Yvonne Wall: I will be using this with my young women. I have been trying to locate a mp3 file that has the vocals included. This would help the girls learn the song quicker, in as much as the accompaniment doesn't play the melody. If someone could direct me to where I could find that, I would be thrilled! Thanks! AND super duper thanks to Sarah for sharing her gifts.
5.0 stars.

More about Sara Lyn Baril:
Sara Lyn (Bissett) Baril was raised in southern Alberta, Canada and started composing music at a very young age. At 16, she began to score some of her compositions which were subsequently performed by talented friends at various functions. Her music has been frequently used over the last 15 years in many church programs (firesides), including sacrament meetings, and occasionally the stage. She has composed music for a Christmas cantata, entitled "Glorious Is His Name", performed in 1999 in Raymond, Alberta and in 2004 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and music for and LDS Stake play entitled "Finding My Way" in 2003, also in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In the fall of 2006, when her black binder of printed music began to burst at the seams and after much encouragement from people in her stake, she began publishing her songs in local bookstores. The ball began to roll very quickly after she sent a few songs down to well-known LDS music producer, Greg Hansen, and by spring 2007, her debut album, "Thy Healing Hands - Songs of Comfort and Peace" was released. In 2015, Sara chose to release a second album, Come To Know Him, which includes an additional 13 songs about Jesus Christ and His gospel. This collection includes many songs written from her young adult years, as well as several new compositions. Both albums include professional LDS vocals from talent such as Daniel Beck, David Osmond, April Meservy, Julie Rose, Dallyn Vail Bayles, Keith McKay Evans, Sara Bethany Ham, and others. Sara enjoys writing inspirational songs and choir numbers, although she has also composed children's music and occasionally a country or love song. She has also written various songs in support of the annual auxiliary themes within the LDS Church. This music has been sung and loved by the Young Women, Primary and Relief Society groups in areas she has lived and served. Sara has found her musical styles to expand over the years and enjoys writing about many topics, but writing songs about the Savior has always been her most fulfilling endeavour. She and her husband, Mark, have five children and reside in southern Alberta. When she's not writing music, she's busy catching up on house work and attending her children's ball games. She currently serves as the Young Women's president in her ward. More sheet music, mp3 downloads, CDs and songbooks at www.saralynbaril.com
Song background:

Press Forward In The Truth is a new song that supports the new 2016 LDS youth theme, 2 Nephi 31:20: 

“Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.” 

I hope you enjoy it and that you’ll download and share with your wards and stakes!

Lyrics: Press Forward In The Truth <br/> <br/>Verse 1 <br/>We are on a path that leads us Home <br/>To our Father, whom we’ve always known. <br/>And with all of our strength, even when it’s steep, <br/>We must keep on climbing. <br/>We have cov’nants to keep. <br/> <br/>CHORUS <br/>We will press forward in the truth <br/>With steadfast faith in Jesus Christ <br/>Hope alive; perfectly bright <br/>With love of God and of all men. <br/> <br/>We must feast upon the word of Christ, <br/>And to the end endure <br/>For if we do these things, says God, <br/>Eternal life is sure. <br/> <br/>Verse 2 <br/>Many things distract us on our way <br/>Calling out to tempt and lead astray <br/>But the spirit will guide when we live His word <br/>If we keep our focus <br/>Our safety’s assured. <br/> <br/>CHORUS <br/>We will press forward in the truth <br/>With steadfast faith in Jesus Christ <br/>Hope alive; perfectly bright <br/>With love of God and of all men. <br/> <br/>We must feast upon the word of Christ, <br/>And to the end endure <br/>For if we do these things, says God, <br/>Eternal life is sure. <br/>(Press forward! Press forward!) <br/> <br/>For if we do these things, says God, <br/>Eternal life is sure.
