The Race of Faith

The Race of Faith


Written by Scofield Family


This song was written by my family as we were studying II Timothy 4. Paul’s final encouragement to Timothy to persevere in faith, following the example that he had given him, really impacted us and so we sat down to write this song. We hope it’s a blessing to you.

(The audio for the song was played 1 whole step low, and so isn’t played in the same key as the chord chart.)

The Race of Faith


Verse 1

Oh to be transformed into the image of His cross

That in the day when He appears I might have confidence


To be made like Him in death that I might reign with Him in life

The life I now live to live by faith in Christ



I have a race to run and I have a fight to fight

Until my race is done and I have poured out my life

To give my life as an offering that’s holy and pleasing to You

And to receive a crown of righteousness which you have prepared…

For all those who love you in truth.


So give me grace to run the race

Give me grace to keep the faith

Give me grace to run the race, it’s a race of faith.


Verse 2

There is a narrow path that all must take if they will live

But we do not walk alone, the Father said He’d give


The Spirit of grace to all who ask Him in faith

And He will keep your blameless until that day
