NOT ASHAMED OF JESUS




Jesus, and shall it ever be,
A mortal man ashamed of Thee,
Ashamed of Thee, whose Angels praise,
Whose glories shine through endless days?


Ashamed of Jesus! sooner far
Let evening blush to own a star;
He shed the beams of light divine
Oer this benighted soul of mine.


Ashamed of Jesus! just as soon
Let midnight be ashamed of noon;
Tis midnight with my soul till He,
Bright morning star, bid darkness flee.


Ashamed of Jesus! shall yon field
Blush, when it thinks who bids it yield?
Yet blush I must while I adore;
I blush to think I yield no more.


Ashamed of Jesus, that dear friend
On whom my hopes of Heaven depend!
No! when I blush, be this my shame,
That I no more revere His name.


Ashamed of Jesus! yes I may,
When Ive no guilt to wash away,
No tear to wipe, no good to crave,
No fears to quell, no soul to save.


Till then nor is my boasting vain
Till then I boast a Saviour slain;
And oh may this my glory be,
That Christ is not ashamed of me!


---Alternative verses---


Jesus, and shall it ever be,
A mortal man ashamed of Thee,
Ashamed of Thee, whom Angels praise,
Whose glories shine through endless days?


Ashamed of Jesus! yes I may,
When Ive no crime to wash away,
No tear to wipe, no good to crave,
No fears to quell, no soul to save.
