Full Text

1 I now am running in the Christian race,
To gain the promised prize;
Through Jesus’ matchless, saving, keeping grace,
We’ll crown Him in the skies.

Refrain:
We shall run and not be weary,
We shall walk and never faint,
We’re trav’ling to our happy home,
We’ll walk and never faint.

2 We’ll run and never falter by the way,
For Jesus’ word is true;
He’s promised, if we ever will obey,
To bring us safely through. [Refrain]

3 I’ll stand upon His word and prove His pow’r,
The Rock of Ages past;
I know He’ll keep me trusting every hour,
While life on earth shall last. [Refrain]

4 The heavy weights of sin are laid aside,
My heart is free and light;
There’s nothing we may fear which can betide,
Our hope is clear and bright. [Refrain]

5 When life is o’er and labor here is done,
Can we thus say with Paul?—
“I’ve fought the fight, and there’s a starry crown,
That’s waiting for us all.” [Refrain]
