S. S. Hos


BREAST the wave, Christian,

When it is strongest;

Watch for day, Christian,

When the night’s longest.

Onward and onward still

Be thine endeavour:

The rest that remaineth

Shall be forever.


Fight the fight, Christian:

Jesus is o’er thee;

Run the race, Christian,

Heaven is before thee.

He that hath promised us,

Faltereth never;

The love of eternity

Flows on forever.


Lift the eye, Christian,

Just as it closeth;

Raise the heart, Christian,

Ere it reposeth.

Thee from the love of Christ

Nothing shall sever,

Mount when thy work is done—

Praise Him forever!
