690. Fight the good fight

1 Fight the good fight with all your might;
Christ is your strength and Christ your right;
lay hold on life, and it shall be
your joy and crown eternally.

2 Run the straight race through God's good grace;
lift up your eyes and seek God's face;
the way of life before you lies;
Christ is the path and Christ the prize.

3 Cast care aside; lean on your guide;
his boundless mercy will provide;
trust, and your trusting soul shall prove
Christ is its life and Christ its love.

4 Faint not, nor fear, those arms are near,
and, changing not, still hold you dear;
hope and believe, and you shall find
Christ is your all: heart, strength and mind.
