Then Sings My Soul Saturdays

Stay Strong

I love this song by the Newsboys. The lyrics are on the video, but I wanted to show the chorus here. Every time I hear this song, I think of the verses in Philippians 3:13-15:

Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Stay strong
You are not lost
Come on and fix your eyes ahead
There's a new dawn to light our day, our day
We've gotta stay strong
You and I run
For the prize that lies ahead
We've come too far to lose our way, our way

Get up, there's further to go
Get up, there's more to be done
Get up, this witness is sure
Get up, this race can be won
This race can be won

Great message in those lyrics!

That's right - We've come too far to lose our way.

I'm a huge Newsboys fan. Everyone in our family loves them. He Reigns: The Worship Collection is my favorite CD.
