A poem for reflection (old churches in Great Britain have such lovely crosses):
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
Must I be carried to the skies
On flowery beds of ease
While others fought to win the prize
Are there no foes for me to face?
Must I not stem the flood?
Is this vile world a friend to grace
Since I might fight if I would reign,
Increase my courage, Lord;
I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by Thy Word.
