664. Fight the Good Fight

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

2 Run the straight race through God's good grace;
Lift up your 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 your guide;
His boundless mercy will provide.
Trust, and enduring faith shall prove
Christ is your life, and Christ your love.

4 Faint not nor fear, His arms are near;
He changes not, who holds you dear;
Only believe, and you will see
That Christ is all eternally.
