Do you long for the prize

Full Text

1 Do you long for the prize?
Is it fair in your eyes?
Are you eager to enter the fray?
Begin it; you'll win it
In the name of the Lord--
Trust in Jesus and never give way.

Refrain:
Trust in Jesus and never give way--
Trust in Jesus, watch ever and pray;
Unto those who endure to the end,
O, how sure is his word, they'll be mine in that day.

2 "There is work I would do,
But my talents are few,
And a mountain is set in my way!"
Just do it!
Go through it
In the name of the Lord--
Trust in Jesus and never give way. [Refrain]

3 There are giants so tall,
And my strength is so small!
But in God is our strength for the fray!
As David was saved
In the name of the Lord,
When he trusted and never gave way. [Refrain]
