We Shall Run and Not Be Weary

Representative Text

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.

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]
