Now begin the heavenly race
The [tag]Savior[/tag] calls today;
Let us early seek His face,
And early learn to [tag]pray[/tag].
He Who left His Father’s throne,
To suffer, bleed and die,
He Who made our grief his own,
Will every want supply.
They who on His Name believe,
And patiently endure,
[tag]Life eternal[/tag] shall receive,
And find His [tag]mercy[/tag] sure.
Now begin the [tag]heavenly[/tag] race,
No more, no more delay;
To the healing fount of [tag]grace[/tag],
Rejoicing, haste away.
