Am I a soldier of the cross,
A foll’wer 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 flow’ry beds of ease?
While others fought to win the prize,
And sailed thru bloody seas?


O, that will be joyful, joyful, joyful!
O, that will be joyful
To meet to part no more.
To meet to part no more,
On Canaan’s happy shore;
We all shall meet at Jesus’ feet
With those who've gone before.
