205. Song of the Cross

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

Refrain:
Give me courage, Lord,
Grace for ev’ry day;
Show thy smiling face;
And help me on my way.

2 Must I be carried to the skies, to the skies, to the skies,
Must I be carried to the skies,
On flow’ry beds of ease,
While others fought to win the prize, to win the prize, to win the prize,
While others fought to win the prize,
And sailed thro’ bloody seas? [Refrain]

3 Sure I must fight if I would reign, if I would reign, if I would reign,
Sure I must fight if I would reign;
Increase my courage, Lord!
I’ll bear the toil endure the pain, endure the pain, endure the pain,
I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by thy word. [Refrain]
