Keeping the Faith



 

How do I lay aside
This weight of living’s care
So I may run unhindered
This race from here to There?

How do I overcome
Life’s hindrances of grief
Lest I become entangled
In webs of unbelief?

How do I keep my faith
Fixed on hope’s faultless Prize
And not become distracted
By fear and follies lies?

Lord, help me cast aside
Temptation’s vile despair
Your Word is Holy Armor
Your fellowship is prayer

 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, Heb. 12:1
