80. I Won’t Give Up! I Will Press On!

Philippians 3:7-15

1. What things were gains to me,

These I now count as loss;

Jesus has set me free

From what I was!

All of the things I had,

Everything good or bad

I count as refuse that I may gain Christ!


I won’t give up! (NO!)

I will keep running until I have attained

The goal of my calling

I will press on! (YES!)

I will pursue until I lay hold of Him

Who laid hold of me.


2. Forget the things behind,

Stretch for the things before.

Press onward with this mind–

Always want more!

Seeking in Him to grow,

Increasingly to know

Him, that I daily might be found in Christ.


I won’t give up! (NO!)

I will keep running until I have attained

The goal of my calling

I will press on! (YES!)

I will pursue until I lay hold of Him

Who laid hold of me.
