Melodies of Praise Lyrics
First Line: 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?
Sure, I must fight if I would reign;
increase my courage, Lord!
I'll bear the toil, endure the pain,
supported by Thy Word.
