609 ~ Am I a Soldier of the Cross?



1

Am I a soldier of the cross,
A follower of the Lamb?
And shall I fear to own His cause?
Or blush to speak His name?


2

Must I be carried to the skies
On flowery beds of ease,
Whilst others fought to win the prize,
And sailed through bloody seas?


3

Are there no foes for me to face?
Must I not stem the flood?
Is this vile world a friend of grace,
To help me on to God?


4

Sure I must fight if I would reign;
Increase my courage, Lord;
I'll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by Thy word.


5

Thy saints in all this glorious war
Shall conquer, though they die;
They see the triumph from afar,
With faith's discerning eye.


6

When that illustrious day shall rise,
And all Thy armies shine
In robes of victory through the skies,
The glory shall be Thine.
