|Composer:||Isaac Watts, Thomas A. Arne|
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?
Must I be carried to the skies on flowery beds of ease?
While others fought to win the prize and sailed through bloody seas.
Sure, I must fight if I would reign, increase my courage, Lord.
I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain, supported by thy word.
Thy saints in all this glorious war shall triumph though they die.
They see the triumph from afar and seize it with their eye.
