[The die is cast, my choice is made]

Composer: Author Unknown (pub.1922)
Published in 2 hymnals

Composer: Author Unknown

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >

Thy Soldier I Will Be

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.
