Galatians 5:1
"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath

          I am resolved no longer to linger,
          Charmed by the world's delight,
          Things that are higher, things that are nobler,
          These have allured my sight.

            Chorus
            I will hasten to Him,
            Hasten glad and free;
            Jesus, greatest, highest,
            I will come to Thee.

          I am resolved to go to the Savior,
          Leaving my sin and strife;
          He is the true One, He is the just One,
          He hath the words of life.

            Chorus
            I will hasten to Him,
            Hasten glad and free;
            Jesus, greatest, highest,
            I will come to Thee.

          I am resolved to follow the Savior,
          Faithful and true each day;
          Heed what He sayeth, do what He willeth,
          He is the living Way.

            Chorus
            I will hasten to Him,
            Hasten glad and free;
            Jesus, greatest, highest,
            I will come to Thee.

          I am resolved to enter the kingdom
          Leaving the paths of sin;
          Friends may oppose me, foes may beset me,
          Still will I enter in.

            Chorus
            I will hasten to Him,
            Hasten glad and free;
            Jesus, greatest, highest,
            I will come to Thee.
