THE CROSS BEFORE THE CROWN




O, speed thee, Christian, on thy way!
And to thine armour cling;
With girded loins the call obey
That love and mercy brings!


There is a battle to be fought,
An upward race to run,
A crown of glory to be sought,
A victory to be won.


O, faint not, Christian! for thy sighs
Are heard before Godís throne;
The race must come before the prize,
The cross before the crown.
