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.

Forget and stretch forward saints! FORGET everything which are behind, both the good and the bad, and STRETCH for to the things which are before, to lay hold of Christ!! Our Christ is new and fresh every day. And He don't want us to do anything for Him out of ourselves, He wants us to simply open to receive His person!

Seeking in Him to grow,

Increasingly to know

Be found in Christ.

Christ Jesus, thank You for being our goal! May we value You more than anyone or anything else! Everything under the sun is just vanity of vanities. All is dung, but You are the peerless One!!

I love this song. We sang it at our high schooler's meeting, just to warm us up for the meeting and hallelujah, praise the Lord! It did, and now I love this song so much!
