A Soldier of Christ

Stern duty bids me walk an unknown trail,A path where darksome shadows seem to be;Yet well I know I shall not faint nor fail,For Love divine goes all the way with me.And though I thread out stretches of the sky.Where winged creatures never yet have flown,No fearsome thought will come as I mount high.For Love's voice whispers, "You are not alone."And if I cannot always trace the wayAcross the deep, or in far desert land,Yet God will guide my footsteps night and day—Wherever I may go He holds my hand.And I will give to groundless hate the lie.A futile weapon, always sure to fall;God's messages of love are ever nigh,With tenderness and care enfolding all.What matters it how rough the path may be?My lifted banner shall not trail the sod;The light of Science straight ahead I see.And joyously I leave it all with God.
