I press toward the mark

For the prize of the upward call,

That crown which is set aside

For those who at Jesus' feet fall.

This prize means fellowship in His sufferings

Being conformed unto His death;

For this was the attitude of Jesus

When for us He drew His last breath.

This prize is never won lightly

Not by those who box at the air -

Nor by those who always seek comfort

Christ Jesus is never found there !

Unto us by God it is given

In the behalf of Jesus our Lord;

Not only to believe on His name

But to sufffer by His own accord.

I press on toward the mark for the prize

The high calling in Christ Yeshua/Jesus;

My affection set on heaven above -

For my life is whatever God pleases.

Ephesians 3:1-17
