678. Am I a soldier of the cross

1 Am I a soldier of the cross,
A follower of the Lamb,
And shall I fear to own his cause,
Or blush to speak his name?

Refrain:
In the name, the precious name
Of him who died for me,
Through grace I’ll win the promised crown,
Whate’er my cross may be.

2 Must I be carried to the skies
On flowery beds of ease,
While others fight to win the prize,
And sail through stormy 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 Since I must fight if I would reign,
Increase my courage, Lord!
I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by thy word.
