Ah, Redemption



Ah, redemption
The athlete cries
As his feet cross over
The finish-line

Ah, redemption
The student cheers
As he waves his diploma
With joyous tears

Ah, redemption
The believer weeps
As he casts his crowns
At Jesus feet

"Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things.
Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an IMPERISHABLE CROWN. Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified." (1 Corinthians 9:24-27)
