Breast the Wave, Christian

Melody -

Joseph Stammers, 1830, alt.

Breast the wave, Christian,
To when it is strongest;
Watch for day, Christian,
When the night's longest;
Onward and onward still
Be thine endeavour;
The rest that remaineth
Will be for ever.
2. Fight the fight, Christian,
Jesus is o'er thee;
Run the race, Christian,
Heaven is before thee;
He who hath promised
Faltereth never;
The love of eternity
Flows on for ever.
3. Lift thine eye, Christian,
Just as it closeth;
Raise thy heart, Christian,
Ere it reposeth;
Thee from the love of Christ
Nothing shall sever;
And, when thy work is done,
Praise him for ever.
