What things were gains to me

1
What things were gains to me,
These I now count as loss.
Jesus has set me free
From what I was!
All of the things I had;
Everything, good or bad,
I count as refuse
That I may gain Christ!
  I won't give up!
I will keep running until
I have attained
The goal of my calling!
I must press on!
I must pursue until
I lay hold of Him
Who laid hold of me!
2
Forget the things behind!
Stretch for the things before!
Press onward with this mind:
Always want more!
Seeking in Him to grow,
Increasingly to know
Him that I daily might
Be found in Christ.

Mariam

Yerevan, Armenia

Oh, this is my favorite hymn! In Armenian it's number 57. We sang this hymn in every meeting, that's why the saints sometimes call me 57.

I won't give up! NO!

I will keep running until

I have attained

The goal of my calling!

I must press on! YES!

I must pursue until

I LAY HOLD OF HIM

WHO LAID HOLD OF ME!

Dear LORD I love YOU very much!

I WON'T GIVE UP!
