“Am I a soldier of the cross, a follo’wer of the Lamb? And shall I fear to own His cause or blush to speak His name?

Must I be carried to the skies on flow’ry beds of ease, while others fought to win the prize and sailed thru bloody seas?

Are there no foes for me to face? Must I not stem the flood? Is this vile world a friend to grace, to help me on to God?

Sure I must fight if I would reign-increase my courage, Lord! I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain, supported by Thy Word.”

Am I A Soldier of the CrossWords by Isaac Watts, Music by Thomas A. Arne
