Christ My Song - 2059
Fight the good fight - The Good Fight
(John S. B. Monsell/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The Good Fight.
"Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life."
(1 Timothy 6,12)
2. Run the straight race
through God's good grace,
lift up thine eyes, and seek his face;
life with its way before us lies,
Christ is the path, and Christ the prize.
3. Cast care aside,
upon thy guide
lean, and his mercy will provide;
lean, and the trusting soul shall prove
Christ is its life, and Christ its love.
4. Faint not nor fear,
his arms are near,
he changeth not, and thou art dear:
only believe, and thou shalt see
that Christ is all in all to thee.
John S. B. Monsell, Hymns of Love and Praise, 1877, 100-101.
