Hymns I’m Angry I Didn’t Learn as a Child (13)

Here is a hymn to go with our upcomming study of 2 Timothy at The Still.  Read 2 Timothy a couple of times and then read the hymn again.  Convicted?  I was.

Am I a Soldier of the Cross?

By Isaac Watts

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?

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 conquer, though they die;

They see the triumph from afar,

By faith’s discerning eye.

When that illustrious day shall rise,

And all Thy armies shine

In robes of victory through the skies,

The glory shall be Thine

  1. Josh, we did sing this one at Oakdale. If grandpa was leading singing, we may have sung the first verse of this one and the second verse of the song across the page,but we did sing it. I’m still going to read 2 Timothy because I’m sure I need it.
