Theme: Jesus Christ
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 Christ's face; Life with its way before us lies, Christ is the path, and Christ the prize. 3. Cast care aside, lean on thy guide; God's boundless mercy will provide; Trust, and thy trusting soul shall prove Christ is its life, and Christ its love. 4. Faint not nor fear, God's arms are near; God changeth not, and thou art dear; Only believe, and thou shalt see That Christ is all in all to thee.
