11895. Fight The Good Fight

1 We soon shall see the day
When our toils and cares shall cease;
When we shall cast our arms away,
And dwell in endless peace:

If, like Paul, we shall fight the good fight;
If, like Paul, we lay hold on eternal life;
We shall receive a crown,
A crown of righteousness,
Which the Lord, the righteous Judge,
Shall give us that day.

2 This hope supports us here,
And it makes our burdens light;
’Twill serve our drooping hearts to cheer,
Till faith shall end in sight: [Refrain]

3 Then, of the prize possessed,
We of wars shall hear no more;
But ever with our leader rest
On yonder peaceful shore: [Refrain]
