1 Standing by the cross of Jesus,
Thro’ faith His throne we see,
Where amid the hosts of Heaven,
The Christian’s home shall be.
Glory, glory to the Savior!
He’s my shepherd,
And my strength and shield!
And to Him, the King of glory,
Sinful hosts shall yield.
2 Let me bear the cross for Jesus,
And wait not by the way;
Gladly I’ll obey His precepts,
And always trust and pray. [Refrain]
3 Happy, happy Christian soldier!
Be watchful and be true;
Never leave the post of duty
That Christ has giv’n to you. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #1291
