Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Let us run our race with patience,
With a clear and single eye,
Ever pressing upward, onward,
As the golden moments fly;
There is much that may beguile us,
From the way of truth and right,
That our feet may never wander,
Let us keep the goal in sight.

“Looking unto Jesus,” we the crown can win,
“Looking unto Jesus,” we can conquer sin,
“Looking unto Jesus,” let our watchword be,
This gives Victory.

2 There are many things which hinder,
These may help us t’ward the goal;
In the struggle we may daily
Build the sinews of the soul,
And we know that overcoming
Makes the victory more sweet,
Adds new notes to our rejoicing,
When the Lord of Life we meet. [Refrain]

3 Let us run with earnest purpose,
Keep a steadfast heart and true,
It will help us in our running
If we keep the goal in view;
What a vision to allure us,
As we press our onward way,
Vision splendid and more splendid,
Growing clearer ev’ry day. [Refrain]
