1. Jesus, and shall it ever be,|
A mortal man ashamed of Thee?
Ashamed of Thee, whom angels praise,
Whose glories shine through endless days?
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.
3. 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.
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! Amen.
