Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Thy Soldier I Will Be

Full Text

1. The die is cast, my choice is made,
A soldier I will be;
Where Jesus leads I’m not afraid,
A soldier I will be.
In any clime, in any place,
E’en can I not my Savior trace,
To spread the news of Jesus’ grace,
A soldier I will be.

Refrain:
I’ll follow Thee, my Savior,
No matter where it be;
I’ll follow Thee, my Savior,
O’er mountain, vale, or sea;
I’ll follow Thee, my Savior,
You can depend on me:
In joy or pain, in loss or gain,
Thy soldier I will be.

2. In spite of sorrow, toil, or pain,
A soldier I will be;
I’ll bear the cross, despise the shame,
A soldier I will be.
I know no color, class, or state,
But cry, “Repent, ere ’tis too late!”
And save lost souls from hell’s sad fate,
A soldier I will be.

3. Until I draw my latest breath
A soldier I will be;
And when my eyes shall close in death,
A soldier I will be.
And when I reach those gates of pearl,
I’ll sheath my sword, my colors furl,
Defiance at the foe I’ll hurl,
A soldier I will be.
