HE

E that goeth forth with weeping,

Bearing precious seed in love, Never tiring, never sleeping,

Findeth mercy from above.

2 Soft descend the dews of heaven,

Bright the rays celestial shine; Precious fruits will thus be given

Through an influence all divine.

3 Sow thy seed, be never weary;

Let no fears thy soul annoy; Be the prospect ne'er so dreary,

Thou shalt reap the fruits of joy.

4 Lo! the scene of verdure brightening,

See the rising grain appear:
Look again, the fields are whitening,
For the harvest-time is near.

Thomas Hastings, 1836

Thy present Spir - it waits to fill The soul which comes to do Thy will.

A - men.

FIGHT the good fight

1

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.
2 Run the straight race

Through 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.
3 Cast care aside,

Upon thy Guide
Lean, and His mercy will provide, -

Lean, and the trusting soul shall prove

Christ is its life, and Christ its love.
4 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.

John S. B. Monsell, 1883
