"THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER"

Verse 1:
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about
With so great a cloud of witnesses,
Let us lay aside every weight,
And the sin which doth so easily beset us,
And let us run with patience the race that is set before us

Chorus 1:
Looking unto Jesus,
The Author and Finisher of our faith;
Looking unto Jesus,
The Author and Finisher of our faith

[Repeat Verse 1]

Chorus 2:
Looking unto Jesus, [looking unto Jesus]
The Author and Finisher of our faith;
Looking unto Jesus, [looking unto Jesus]
The Author and Finisher of our faith

Verse 2:
Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross,
Despising the shame, and is set down [set down] at the
Right hand [right hand] of the throne [of the throne] of God, oh...

[Repeat Chorus 2]

[Repeat Verse 2]

[Looking unto Jesus]
[Looking unto Jesus]

And let us run with patience the race that is set before us

Looking unto Jesus, [looking unto Jesus] the
Author and Finisher of our faith, the
Author and Finisher of our faith
