Fight the Good Fight
Words by John S.B. Monsell

1 Timothy 6:12
"Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou
art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses."


          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.

          Run the straight race thro' 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.

          Cast care aside, lean on thy Guide,
          His boundless mercy will provide;
          Trust, and thy trusting shoul shall prove
          Christ is its life, and Christ its love.

          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.
