Pressing On In The Race

Lord, make me deaf and dumb and blind;
To all ‘those things which are behind’:

Deaf to the voice that memory brings,
Accusing me of many things,

Dumb to the things my tongue could speak,
Reminding me when I was weak;

Blind to the things I still might see,
When they come back to trouble me;

Let me press on to Thy high calling
In Christ, Who keepeth me from falling

Forgetting all that lies behind –
Lord, make me deaf, and dumb, and blind;

Like Paul, I then shall win the race;
I would have lost but for Thy grace!

Forgetting all that I have done –
‘Twas Thee, dear Lord, not I, who won.

(Philippians 3:12-14)
