728. Am I a Soldier of the Cross

1 Am I a soldier of the cross?
A foll'wer 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 flow'ry beds of ease
While others fought to win the prize
And sailed thro' bloody seas?

3 Are there no foes for me to face?
Must I not stem the flood?
Is this vile world a friend to 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.
