Fight the Good Fight

Fight the Good Fight

Fight the good fight with all thy might,
Christ is thy strength, and Christ thy right.
Lay hold on life, and it shall be
Thy joy and crown eternally.

Run the straight race through God’s good grace,
Lift up thine eyes, and seek his face;
Life with its way before thee lies;
Christ is the path, and Christ thy prize.

Cast care aside, lean on thy guide;
His boundless mercy will provide;
Lean, and the trusting soul shall prove
Christ is its light, and Christ its love.

Faint not nor fear, His arms are near;
He changeth not, and thou art dear;
Only believe, and thou shalt see
That Christ is all in all to thee.

 (J. Monsell)
