122. Fight the Good Fight

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.
