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]
