‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross?’

Youtube has taken down Andy Kenway’s wonderful rendition of this ancient hymn by Isaac Watts, Am I a Soldier of the Cross? I’ll have to choose a favorite from among the others. This one is by The Chuck Wagon Gang.


‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross?’

This classic hymn by Isaac Watts, Am I a Soldier of the Cross, here gets a simple by effective arrangement by Tristan Vaughn Nunez. Isaac Watts’ hymns are going on 300 years old, but still sung all around the world today.


‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross?’

This is a classic Isaac Watts hymn–Am I Soldier of the Cross?–set against a Scottish highland backdrop by singer Andy Kenway: the work of God’s hands, who sculpted the shape of the earth.


‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross’

Music by Andy Kenway, words by Isaac Watts, the harsh beauty of the Scottish Highlands by God the Father: and we have Am I a Soldier of the Cross.

I’m at the doctor’s office (regularly scheduled checkup) as you listen to this hymn.

*Sigh* No I’m not. I fumbled this and it’s still Sunday.


‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross?’

It’s been a while since I posted this one: Andy Kenway singing Am I a Soldier of the Cross, by Isaac Watts. With the stark beauty of the Scottish countryside for background.

When the Lord calls, better listen.


Encore, ‘Soldier of the Cross’

Yes, I know I’ve posted this hymn several times before: given the desperately evil state of our country, I find some comfort in it: Am I a Soldier of the Cross, by Isaac Watts. This version by Andy Kenway, backed up by the stark beauty of the Scottish Highlands, is my favorite.


‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross?’

First things first–and here the first order of business, daily, is to post a hymn.

Am I a Soldier of the Cross–written by Isaac Watts, early 18th century, sung by Andy Kenway, with the stark beauty of the Scottish Highlands in the background–this is the hymn that had hold of me the other night. It does seem more than usually appropriate, in this present age.


‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross?’

This glorious 18th-century hymn by Isaac Watts, Am I a Soldier of the Cross?, gets a spirited rendition by the congregation at Temple Baptist Church in Powell, TN. Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!


‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross?’

This version of Am I a Soldier of the Cross?, sung by Doris Johnson, was the No. 1 Gospel hit in February, 2016. I wonder what Isaac Watts would have thought of that? He wrote and published this hymn in 1724.

This is the hymn that’s on my mind this morning. If you have one that you’d like to see posted here, just let me know.


Encore, ‘A Soldier of the Cross’

I’m posting this hymn again because the times cry out for it: Am I a Soldier of the Cross, words by Isaac Watts, sung by Andy Kenway.

Listen to the lyrics. I’ll bear the sword, endure the pain, supported by Thy word. We need this spirit now, in the church. It is with us now as it was in the days of Arthur.

May God revive His people’s martial spirit.
