Cross Reflection 2

Lent Day 30 & 31. 

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
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?

Since I might fight if I would reign,
Increase my courage, Lord;
I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by Thy Word.
