Fight the good fight with all thy might,
Christ is thy strength, and Christ thy right;
lay hold on life and it shall be
thy joy and crown eternally.
Run the straight race through God’s good grace,
lift up thine eyes and seek his face;
life with its way before us lies,
Christ is the path, and Christ the prize.
Cast care aside, upon thy Guide
lean, and his mercy will provide;
lean, and the trusting soul shall prove
Christ is its life, and Christ its love.
Faint not nor fear, his arms are near,
he changeth not, and thou art dear;
only believe, and thou shalt see
that Christ is all in all to thee.
