102. Press toward the Mark

1 Ring out the word from Christ the Lord,
Our Captain in the skies,
To all the saved who have believed:
"Press toward the mark for the prize!"

Refrain:
Press toward the mark for the prize!
Press toward the mark for the prize!
Let us suffer with Him and the "Well done" win,
Press toward the mark for the prize!

2 He'll give the grace to win the race
To him who bravely tries;
for Jesus' sake the message take:
"Press toward the mark for the prize!" [Refrain]

3 Keep, then, the road: fight on for God,
Though enemies arise;
The Lord with thee thy strength shall be:
"Press toward the mark for the prize!" [Refrain]

4 Bear, then, the cross: count all things loss;
On Jesus fix your eyes;
Till Christ has come, till heav'n is won:
"Press toward the mark for the prize!" [Refrain]
