• W. Austin Gardner

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?


Must I be carried to the skies

On flowery beds of ease,

While others fought to win the prize

And sailed through 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!


Since I must fight if I would reign,

Increase my courage, Lord!

I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain,

Supported by Thy word.


Isaac Watts
