1 Fight the good fight with all your might;
Christ is your strength, and Christ your right;
lay hold on life, and it shall be
your joy and crown eternally.
2 Run the straight race through God's good grace,
lift up your eyes and seek his face;
life with its way before us lies;
Christ is the way, and Christ the prize.
3 Cast care aside, lean on your Guide;
his boundless mercy will provide.
Trust, and your trusting soul shall prove
Christ is its life, and Christ its love.
4 Faint not, nor fear; his arms are near;
he does not change, and you are dear;
only believe, and Christ shall be
your all in all eternally.
