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 Christ's face.
Life with its way before us lies;
Christ is the way, and Christ the prize.
3 Cast care aside, lean on your guide;
God's boundless mercy will provide;
trust, and the trusting soul shall prove
Christ is its life, and Christ its love.
4 Faint not nor fear, God's arms are near;
God changes not and you are dear.
Only believe, and Christ shall be
your all in all eternally.
