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 path before us lies;
Christ is the way, and Christ the prize.

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

– John S. B. Monsell (1811 – 1875)
