The Race is Not Over Yet

The race is not over yet
So many miles remain, so many turns of the road
The day is not done, the sun has not set
The wait is almost over now
But the race is not yet

Go the distance for the Prize that now awaits you
Well done, good and faithful one
Don’t let your eyes be swayed by those who try to bait you
Well done, my friend, well done

Let your heart be on the mark, let your face be in the wind
Though the day be turned to dark let the Spirit burn within
Though you fall, though you fall
Don’t give up; don’t give up

The race is not over yet
So many miles remain, so many turns of the road
The day is not done, the sun has not set
The wait is almost over now
But the race is not yet

I can hear the sound of voices as they’re cheering at the lines
“Hold on, stay strong; not much longer must you run!”
Let your heart of flesh give in and rest into the heart of God
The end, my friend, lies just within a few more yards

Let your heart be on the mark, let your face be in the wind
Though the day be turned to dark let the Spirit burn within
Though you fall, though you fall
Don’t give up; don’t give up

The race is not over yet
So many miles remain, so many turns of the road
The day is not done, the sun has not set
The wait is almost over now
The wait is almost over now
The wait is almost over now
But the race is not over yet


for my friend Cullette, wherever she may be.
