Keep running and don't look back,
Look farther down the road;
Cast your cares on Jesus,
He'll help you bear your load.
Fix you eyes on Jesus,
Look upon His lovely face;
Someday you'll see heaven,
Until then, stay in the race!
Keep looking straight ahead,
Don't look to the left or right;
Don't wander off His pathway,
Keep heading toward His light.
Keep running and don't look back
Until the race is won;
Some day you'll cross the finish line
And hear Him say, "Well done!"

Therefore, we also, since we are surrounded
by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay
aside every weight and the sin which so easily
ensnares us, and let us run with endurance
the race that is set before us. (Hebrews 12:1)
