I have Fought the Good Fight Lyrics

"I the good fight have fought,"
O when shall I declare?
The victory by my Savior got,
I long with Paul to share.

O may I triumph so,
When all my warfare's past;
And dying, find my latest foe
Under my feet at last!

This blessèd word be mine,
Just as the port is gained,
"Kept by the power of grace divine,
I have the faith maintained."

The apostles of my Lord,
To whom it first was given,
They could not speak a greater word,
Nor all the saints in Heaven.
