"To the higher calling..."

One of the readings for this week's worship was Philippians 3:4-14, which includes this passage:
...this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. [Phil 3:13b-14 KJV]
Like Sean Curnyn, I was reminded of the refrain of Bob Dylan's song Pressing On. Curnyn:
Well I'm pressing on
Yes, I'm pressing on
Well I'm pressing on
To the higher calling of my Lord
And there's really not much more you can say but that, which is probably why the song is largely just that refrain repeated over and over again.

Killing two birds with one stone on this Day of Saint Patrick, I am embedding a live version via YouTube below from two talented Irishmen, namely Liam O Maonlai and Glen Hansard.
