1. Am I a soldier of the cross, A foll'wer of the Lamb? And shall I fear to own His cause, Or blush to speak His name? 2. Must I be carried to the skies On flow'ry beds of ease, While others fought to win the prize, And sailed thro' bloody seas? 3. 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? 4. Sure I must fight, if I would reign; Increase my courage, Lord! I'll bear the toil, endure the pain, Supported by Thy Word.
