Pastor Steve’s Reflections on Hymns

Am I a Soldier of the Cross
Be on your guard . . . Be men of courage; be strong—1 Corinthians 16:13 NIV

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.

Isaac Watts
