Description
Dedicated to the memory of Erik Routley, this powerful hymn-anthem was out of print for many years, but is now once again available. Scored for SATB and organ, the work shifts from minor to major in its final climactic pages.

Text
Fight the good fight with all thy might!
Christ is thy strength and Christ thy right.
Lay hold on life and it shall be
thy joy and crown eternally.

Run the straight race through God's good grace;
lift up thine eyes, and seek his face.
Life with its way before us lies;
Christ is the path, and Crhist the prize.

Cast care aside, lean on thy guide;
his boundless mercy will provide.
Trust, and thy trusting soul shall prove
Christ is its life, and Christ its life and love.

Faint not nor fear, his arms are near;
he changes not, and thou art dear,
only believe, and thou shalt see
that Christ is all in all to thee.

Fight the good fight with all thy might!
Christ is thy strength, and Christ thy right!
Lay hold on life and it shall be
thy joy and crown eternally!

--J.S.B. Monsell
