10163. The Heavenly Race

1 Rejoice, my soul, the trumpet sounds,
And calls thee to the strife;
Forget the things that are behind,
And seek the crown of life.

Refrain:
Press onward, onward, oh, my soul,
Look up to Christ, thy Lord—
You fight, I’ll conquer,
He hath said;
Trust in His faithful word.

2 A host of witnesses around,
Behold thee in the fight;
Keep on the path their feet have trod,
And keep the crown in sight. [Refrain]

3 Thy glorious captain from on high,
With joy looks down on thee,
" fight, I’ll conquer," is His word,
"I’ll give the victory." [Refrain]
