    Verse 1
    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?

    Verse 2
    Must I be carried to the skies
    On flowery beds of ease,
    While others fought to win the prize,
    And sailed through bloody seas?

    Verse 3
    Are there no foes for me to face?
    Must I not stem the flood?
    Is this vule world a friend to grace,
    To help me on to God?

    Verse 4
    Since I must fight if I would reign,
    Increase my courage, Lord!
    I'll bear the toil, endure the pain,
    Supported by Thy Word.

    Verse 5
    Though, Thy people die in the fray
    Yet, they shall win the day
    They see the victo-ry a far
    They are no more afraid.

    Verse 6
    When that glorious morn shall arrive
    With all thine shining host
    In garments of triumph on high
    The glory will be thine.
