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.
