1 Have you entered the race for the prize, my brother,
For the crown of immortal life?
Do you earnestly run for the goal, my brother?
Are you fearless amid earth’s strife?

Refrain:
Let your light shine out clean and bright, my brother,
As you travel thro’ darkness and doubt;
There are shadows that you may dispel, my brother;
Jesus says, Let your light shine out.

2 Does the pathway seem tedious and lone, my brother,
Are you weary, perplexed or faint?
Be courageous, for Christ is at hand, my brother,
To deliver each burdened saint. [Refrain]

3 There are pilgrims who need kindly words, my brother,
Like our Lord, let us cheer and bless;
Any season, or place we can serve, my brother,
Surely makes our own burden less. [Refrain]

4 Time for winning the prize, is but short, my brother,
Then so run that you may obtain;
Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus alone, my brother;
He will make all your pathway plain. [Refrain]

5 Then be vigilant, loyal, and firm, my brother,
For the enemy lies in wait;
Ever wear the whole armor of God, my brother,
And your victory will be great. [Refrain]
