603. Wear a Crown

1 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?

Refrain:
And when the battle's over we shall wear a crown!
Yes, we shall wear a crown!
Yes, we shall wear a crown!
And when the battle's over we shall wear a crown
In the new Jerusalem.
Wear a crown, wear a crown,
Wear a bright and shine crown,
And when the battle's over we shall wear a crown
In the new Jerusalem.

2 Must I be carried to the skies
On flow'ry beds of ease,
While others fought to win the prize,
And sailed thro' bloody seas? [Refrain]

3 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? [Refrain]

4 Sure I must fight if I would reign;
Increase my courage, Lord;
I'll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by Thy word. [Refrain]
