Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for 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. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

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

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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]
