1. Let us run with perseverance,
Pressing forward by God's grace,
Looking always unto Jesus,
'Til we see Him face to face.
In the day when we are tempted
And enticed to leave the way,
Let us keep our eyes on Jesus
And in Him we shall not stray.
2. In the day of joy and gladness,
Let us come and bring our praise,
For when we look unto Jesus,
We have cause to thank always.
In the day of grief and sorrow,
Let us run and be assured,
To the ones who look to Jesus,
God makes all things work for good.
3. In the day when we grow weary,
Let us rise and strive and fight.
We must keep our eyes on Jesus,
Lest we sleep while it is light.
Let us not become discouraged
When the way grows steep and long,
But affix our eyes on Jesus;
He can change our sighs to song.
4. Many saints have gone before us;
They bear witness, God is true.
As they ran and looked to Jesus,
He brought each one safely through.
Press on Christian, run with patience,
Whether you find ease or strife;
Never take your eyes off Jesus,
Only He has Words of Life.
