J. S. B. Monsell


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 us lies,

Christ is the path, and Christ the prize.


Cast care aside, lean on thy Guide;

His boundless mercy will provide;

Trust, and thy 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.
