CONFLICT AND HEROISM


Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus
 


131 Am I a Soldier of the Cross
(ARLINGTON. C.M.)
Isaac Watts,1724 Thomas A. Arne,1762
 
  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 ?
  2. Must I be carried to the skies,
    On flowery 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. Since I must fight if I would reign,
    Increase my courage, Lord !
    I'll bear the toil, endure the pain,
    Supported by thy word. Amen.
