78. Pursue Him and Know Him

1. Pursue Him and know Him; be found in Him.

Count all things loss for Him.

Just gain Him, obtain Him; lay hold of Him

It’s Christ the central vision.


Forgetting the things which are behind,

Press on, pursue with this mind.

By any means each hour now redeem;

Stretch forth lay hold of Him.


2. Pursue Him and seize Him, Christ the supreme.

Just love this precious Person.

Forgetting and leaving all other things,

Love Him with your whole being.


Forgetting the things which are behind,

Press on, pursue with this mind.

By any means each hour now redeem;

Stretch forth lay hold of Him.


3. Christ now is my centre and reality,

My life for eternity.

All things are just dung compared to Him,

So love and just gain Him!


Forgetting the things which are behind,

Press on, pursue with this mind.

By any means each hour now redeem;

Stretch forth lay hold of Him.
