I am looking for a hymn with a verse that states:

If I should die upon a foreign field (or land) some day...

Thanks.

Missionary Hymn - If I should die upon a foreign field

Could this be what you're looking for? The line you quoted is in the third verse.

FOLLOW ME
By Ira Stamphill

I traveled down a lonely road and no one seemed to care,
The burden on my weary back had bowed me to despair,
I oft complained to Jesus how folks were treating me,
And then I heard Him so so tenderly,
"My feet were also weary upon the Calv'ry road,
The cross became so heavy I fell beneath the load,
Be faithful weary pilgrim, the morning I can see,
Just lift your cross and follow close to me."

"I work so hard for Jesus" I often boast and say,
"I've sacrificed a lot of things to walk the narrow way,
I gave up fame and fortune; I'm worth a lot to thee,"
And then I heard Him gently say to me,
"I left the throne of glory and counted it but loss,
My hands were nailed in anger upon a cruel cross,
But now we'll make the journey with your hand safe in mine,
So lift your cross and follow close to me."

Oh Jesus if I die upon a foreign field someday
'Twould be no more than love demands, no less could I repay,
"No greater love hath mortal man than for a friend to die,"
These are the words he gently spoke to me,
"If just a cup of water I place within your hand
Then just a cup of water is all that I demand,"
But if by death to living they can thy glory see,
I'll take my cross and follow close to thee.

This song was sung at the funeral for my husband who was killed in Vietnam. I have wanted to find the words again for many years. Thanks.

The Lord laid this song on my heart today SO strongly. I hadn't heard it since I was a little kid. An old preacher named J. Bennett Collins came thru our town preaching and my mom bought me his album. This song was on it. I used to lie in bed at night listening to this song over and over. I was young and didn't really understand the words, but the song truly touched my heart even back then (at least 35 years ago).
Lately I've been dealing with some ministry issues. My husband (a prison chaplain for the past 31 years) went to be with the Lord a few months ago. I've been struggling with which direction to take the ministry, constantly reminding the Lord that I'm not as talented or gifted as he was. This morning when I awoke, this song was in my spirit (I hadn't heard it since childhood), so I just HAD to do an online search to see if I could find all the words.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!

This is the exact song I needed the correct lyrics for, but now I need a chord chart to go along with it; any suggestions as to where I might find, same?
