Ashamed of Jesus

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

Refrain:
Ashamed of Jesus, that dearest 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 2:
Ashamed of Jesus! sooner far
Let evening blush to own a star;
He sheds the beams of light divine
O’er this benighted soul of mine.

Verse 3:
Ashamed of Jesus! yes, I may,
When I’ve no guilt to wash away,
No tear to wipe, no good to crave,
No fear to quell, no soul to save.

Verse 4:
Till then, nor is my boasting vain,
Till then I boast a Saviour slain;
And O, may this my glory be,
That Christ is not ashamed of me.

Joseph Grigg/S.G. Coles
