Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

322a. Am I a Soldier of the Cross?

1. Am I a soldier of the cross-
A follow'r of the Lamb?
And shall I fear to own His cause,
Or blush to speak His Name?

Chorus:
In the Name of Christ the King,
Who hath purchased life for me,
Thro' grace I'll win the promised crown,
Whate'er my cross may be.

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? [Chorus]

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? [Chorus]

4. Since I must fight if I would reign,
Increase my courage, Lord!
I'll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by Thy Word. [Chorus]
