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 vain 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.
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 Thine armies shine
In robes of victory through the skies,
The glory shall be Thine.
