Lyrics
Strive aright when God in mercy
His compassion turns to you,
That your soul so long o'erburdened,
Freed from sin might live anew.

Strive to enter at the portal,
Walk the narrow path of life;
Here we wander in the valley;
Death abounds with toil and strife.

Strive with zeal and passion glowing
In the strength of your first love;
Break the bonds of earth that keep you
From your bright abode above.

Battle 'gainst the pow'r of Satan!
Grow not weary in the fight,
Struggle forward to the kingdom
Of your God in endless light!

Trembling, keep your soul from falling;
Prize your ransom more and more;
Daily round your mortal body
Countless dangers hover o'er.

Grasp the crown of glory firmly;
God's own precious gift retain.
Perseverance brings the vict'ry;
Sinful fall brings inward pain.

Until death the true and faithful
Constantly shall fight with sin.
Faith unwav'ring is their weapon;
Every victory they'll win.

Faith so true adores the Saviour,
Loves His care and all His ways;
Does not cherish worldly pleasure,
Gives to God alone its praise.

Faithfulness will never venture;
Of this world it is aware.
If your treasure is in heaven,
Then your heart is also there.

Ye, who fight, do this consider;
Strive aright, and trembling stand!
Daily let your feet move onward
Till you reach the heav'nly land.
