Hymn, ‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross’

Hard times are here for Christians, and harder times are coming. We’ll need courage to get through them. We’ll need faith.

But greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. God loved the world, and sent His Son to save it. We belong to Him, and He will not lose us.

This is an ancient hymn, with lyrics by Isaac Watts. Listen to this hymn: listen to the words, and don’t be daunted by the video.

Those stones mark victory.

  1. This was a great video, Lee! There were several pictures I recognized from Scottish Covenanter history, including Greyfriars Kirkyard. It reminded me of your posting (7/23/2014) of John Bunyan’s hymn, “To Be a Pilgrim”. (I’m still humming that tune!) Also, not to detract from your great “Bell Mountain” series, it reminds me of the “Crown and Covenant” trilogy of YA historical fiction by Douglas Bond (http://www.bondbooks.net/crowncovenant.htm). I hope you don’t mind me mentioning other writers, but we homeschoolers need all the good reading we can get–books that prepare us for the fight! Oh, yes, today (11/22) was “Christ the King” Sunday (the Sunday before Advent).

    1. John, thanks for the tip: I’ll have to read those “Crown and Covenant” books. I’m always looking for solid, edifying reading matter that I can recommend, especially for young people.
