Am I a soldier of the Cross
- 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?
- In the name, the precious name,
Of Him who died for me,
Through grace I’ll win the promised crown,
Whate’er my cross may be.
On flowery beds of ease,
While others fought to win the prize
And sailed through bloody seas?
Must I not stem the flood?
Is this vile world a friend to grace,
To help me on to God?
Increase my courage, Lord!
I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by Thy Word.
