So Run

So Run

 

Run the race

Run with purpose

Purpose of mind

Purpose of heart

Heart unwavering

Heart determined

Determined to endure

Determined to see

See that city

See the Savior

Savior,Redeemer

Savior, guide

Guide my footsteps

Guide my path

Path of righteousness

Path of holiness

Holiness in living

Holiness of mind

Mind of the Spirit

Mind of Christ

Christ the Light

Christ the Way

Way to salvation

Way to eternity

Eternity nears

Eternity beckons

Beckons and pleads

Beckons and summons

Summons to serve

Summons to sacrifice

Sacrifice self

Sacrifice time

Time to consecrate

Time to dedicate

Dedicate unselfishly

Dedicate wholly

Wholly yielded

Wholly given

Given to glorify

Given to fulfill

Fulfill God’s desire

Fulfill God’s plan

Plan to participate

Plan to be runners

Runners start

Runners finish

Start

Finish.

1Corinthians 9:24-27 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

  1. Sis. Connell, this is beautiful! The meaning is so powerful, and the way you composed this piece is incredible too. I love the repeat using the last word of the previous line. Amazing! Thank you
