There’s a race for us to run—Hallelujah

There’s a race for us to run—Hallelujah,
  And a way for us the race to win.
To all those who have begun—Hallelujah,
  God has spoken, “Look away to Him!”
  Look away! O look away!
Look to Jesus now today!
Look away from everything unto Jesus,
  Look away from everything to Him!
Look away from all around—Hallelujah,
  Look away from all the strife and din;
Look away where peace is found—Hallelujah,
  Look away from everything to Him.
Look away from fickle soul—Hallelujah,
  Look away from failing self within;
Look away toward the goal—Hallelujah,
  Look away from everything to Him.
Look away from all the past—Hallelujah,
  Look away from both the good and sin;
To the living One hold fast—Hallelujah,
  Look away from everything to Him.
Look away into His face—Hallelujah,
  He who’ll finish what He did begin.
O what grace to run the race—Hallelujah—
  We obtain by looking off to Him!

“D. His Endeavor

1. Running the Race

In verse 24 Paul goes on to say, ‘Do you not know that those who run in a racecourse all run, but one receives the prize? So run, that you may lay hold. ’ This reveals that the Christian life is a race we must run successfully. The prize is a reward as an incentive. To lay hold is to obtain the prize. ” (Life-Study of First Corinthians, Message 46, page 410).
