Am I A Soldier Of The Cross?

Lyrics: Isaac Watts
Music: Thomas A. Arne

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.

Marching To Zion

Lyrics: Isaac Watts (refrain by Robert Lowry)
Music: Robert Lowry

Come, we that love the Lord,
And let our joys be known;
Join in a song with sweet accord,
Join in a song with sweet accord
And thus surround the throne,
And thus surround the throne.

Refrain:
We’re marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We’re marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.

Let those refuse to sing,
Who never knew our God;
But children of the heavenly King,
But children of the heavenly King
May speak their joys abroad,
May speak their joys abroad.

Then let our songs abound,
And every tear be dry;
We’re marching through Immanuel’s ground,
We’re marching through Immanuel’s ground,
To fairer worlds on high,
To fairer worlds on high.

Lyrics and Music: unknown

In the Name of Jesus,
In the Name of Jesus,
We have the victory;

In the Name of Jesus,
In the Name of Jesus,
We have the victory,

Who can tell of
God’s pow’rful works,
Who can fathom
God’s great love;

In the Name of Jesus, Jesus,
We have the victory.

Over the last few weeks, I have been involved in helping to compile a hymn book entitled “PTPM Pilgrimage Singspiration”. This is a bilingual song book (English and Chinese). If you are interested in getting a copy or in going for a Holy Land Study Tour, contact Rev Paul Lee Tan at http://tanbible.com

Lyrics: Ida A. Guirey
Music: Charles H. Gabriel

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, bloom within my heart;
Beauties of Thy truth and holiness impart,
That where’er I go my life may shed abroad
Fragrance of the knowledge of the love of God.

Refrain:
Jesus, Rose of Sharon,
Bloom in radiance and in love within my heart.

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, sweeter far to see
Than the fairest flow’rs of earth could ever be,
Fill my life completely, adding more each day
Of Thy grace divine and purity, I pray.

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, balm for every ill,
May Thy tender mercy’s healing pow’r distil
For afflicted souls of weary burdened men,
Giving needy mortals health and hope again.

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, bloom forevermore;
Be Thy glory seen on earth from shore to shore,
Till the nations own Thy sov’reignty complete,
Lay their honors down and worship at Thy feet.

Here’s a short but well loved chorus.

Lyrics: Anonymous

I know the Lord will make a way for me,
I know the Lord will make a way for me,
If I look to Him and pray,
Darkest night will turn to day,
I know the Lord will make a way for me.
