Encore, ‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross’

This is the hymn that’s been in my mind lately–Am I a Soldier of the Cross, by Isaac Watts, sung here by Andy Kenway… against the stark beauty of the Scottish countryside.

Listen to the words. Lyrics like these are not in fashion nowadays: “Saints… shall conquer tho’ they die.” Or, as St. Paul put it, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors, through him that loved us” (Romans 8:37).

  1. Thank you, Lee. In this evil, fallen world, hope in Jesus is our answer – always. We must be mindful to wear our gospel armor at all times these days!
