38. Thy Soldier I Will Be

1. The die is cast, my choice is made,
A soldier I will be;
Where Jesus leads I’m not afraid,
A soldier I will be.
In any clime, in any place,
E’en can I not my Savior trace,
To spread the news of Jesus’ grace,
A soldier I will be.

Refrain:
I’ll follow Thee, my Savior,
No matter where it be;
I’ll follow Thee, my Savior,
O’er mountain, vale, or sea;
I’ll follow Thee, my Savior,
You can depend on me:
In joy or pain, in loss or gain,
Thy soldier I will be.

2. In spite of sorrow, toil, or pain,
A soldier I will be;
I’ll bear the cross, despise the shame,
A soldier I will be.
I know no color, class, or state,
But cry, “Repent, ere ’tis too late!”
And save lost souls from hell’s sad fate,
A soldier I will be.

3. Until I draw my latest breath
A soldier I will be;
And when my eyes shall close in death,
A soldier I will be.
And when I reach those gates of pearl,
I’ll sheath my sword, my colors furl,
Defiance at the foe I’ll hurl,
A soldier I will be.
