Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

503. We Shall Run and Not Be Weary

1 I now am running in the Christian race,
To gain the promised prize;
Through Jesus’ matchless, saving, keeping grace,
We’ll crown Him in the skies.

Refrain:
We shall run and not be weary,
We shall walk and never faint,
We’re trav’ling to our happy home,
We’ll walk and never faint.

2 We’ll run and never falter by the way,
For Jesus’ word is true;
He’s promised, if we ever will obey,
To bring us safely through. [Refrain]

3 I’ll stand upon His word and prove His pow’r,
The Rock of Ages past;
I know He’ll keep me trusting every hour,
While life on earth shall last. [Refrain]

4 The heavy weights of sin are laid aside,
My heart is free and light;
There’s nothing we may fear which can betide,
Our hope is clear and bright. [Refrain]

5 When life is o’er and labor here is done,
Can we thus say with Paul?—
“I’ve fought the fight, and there’s a starry crown,
That’s waiting for us all.” [Refrain]
