Ashamed of Jesus, #135


Verse 1
Jesus, and shall it ever be
A mortal man ashamed of Thee?
Ashamed of Thee, whom angels praise,
Whose glories shine thro’ endless days?

Ashamed of Jesus, I never, I never will be;
For Jesus, my Savior, is not ashamed of me.

Verse 2
Ashamed of Jesus! sooner far
Let ev’ning blush to own a star;
He sheds the beams of light divine
O’er this benighted soul of mine.

Verse 3
Ashamed of Jesus! that dear Friend,
On whom my hopes of heav’n depend?
No! when I blush be this my shame,
That I no more revere His name.

Verse 4
Ashamed of Jesus! yes, I may,
When I’ve no guilt to wash away,
No tear to wipe, no good to crave,
No fears to quell, no soul to save.
