112. Breast the wave, Christian


William C. Filby, 1874

Joseph Stammers, 1830;


Breast the wave, Christian,

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.

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.

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.
