This #TBT pendant was designed back in 2003 made in the USA. We used fine quality lead free pewter with large ball steel ball chain. This is a great example of our true American design. Cross Soldier Necklace was inspired by this a great song that needs a cool throwback pendant, what better than a Christian soldier pendant that is holding a Cross in place of a rifle... The Song goes like this: 1 Onward, Christian solders, marching as to war, With the cross of Jesus going on before! Christ, the royal Master, leads again the foe; Forward into battle, see his banner go! Refrain: Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war, With the cross of Jesus going on before! 2 At the sign of triumph Satan's host doth flee; On, then, Christian soldiers, on to victory! Hell's foundations quiver at the shout of praise; Brothers, lift your voices,loud your anthems raise! [Refrain] 3 Like a mighty army moves the church of God; Brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod; We are not divided; all one body we, One in hope and doctrine, one in charity. [Refrain] 4 Onward, then, ye people join our happy throng, Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song; Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King; This thro' countless ages men and angels sing. [Refrain] The man behind the Cross Soldier

In 1871 he became rector of East Mersea, Essex, and in 1881 rector of Lew Trenchard, Devon. His works are numerous, the most important of which are, Lives of the Saints, 15 vols., 1872-77; Curious Myths of the Middle Ages, 2 series, 1866-68; The Origin and Development of Religious Belief, 2 vols., 1869-1870; and various volumes of sermons.

In the Sacristy for Nov. 1871, he also contributed nine carols to an article on "The Noels and Carols of French Flanders." These have been partially transferred to Chope's and Staniforth's Carol Books, and also to his Church Songs. -John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907) Cross Soldier is in limited supply act now and get yours today before we sell out!
