88. When the Battle's Over

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?

Chorus:
And when the battle's over
We shall wear a crown,
We shall wear a crown,
In the New Jerusalem.

2 Must I be carried to the skies
On flowery beds of ease,
While others fought to win the prize,
And sailed through bloody seas?
[Chorus]

3 And there no foes for me to face?
Must I not stem the flood?
In this vile world a friend to grace,
To help me on to God?
[Chorus]

4 Sure I must fight if I would reign,
Increase my courage, Lord;
I'll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by thy word.
[Chorus]
