Hymn/Song Information

RACE




Rise, aspire, my groveling soul,
Vigorous run the heavenly race;
Swift revolving seasons roll,
And reprove thy lingering pace.


Rouse thy dull inactive powers,
Careful tread the sacred road;
Be the pilgrims footsteps yours,
Humbly walk before thy God.


If dread foes beset thy path,
Gins and snares before thee lie;
These but call for stronger faith,
Fly to Christ, for succour fly.


Swiftly rise, why lingerest thou!
Angels bright invite thee home;
Wilt thou midst the world’s vain show,
Lightly think of joys to come.
