Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

338. Shall I Be Ashamed?

1 Shall I be ashamed of my Savior and King,
Who left His bright glory, salvation to bring?
Who was cruelly crucified, wounded, and maimed—
Of such a great Savior shall I be ashamed?

Refrain:
No, no! I’ll not be ashamed;
No, no! I’ll not be ashamed.

2 Shall I be ashamed of His wonderful word?
Or blush when the praises of Jesus are heard?
Shall the laugh of the skeptic my lips tightly seal,
Lest I my profession of Christ should reveal? [Refrain]

3 Shall I be ashamed of the people of God
Who walk in the pathway that Jesus has trod?
Shall I shrink from opposing the forces of sin,
And grieve from my bosom the Spirit within? [Refrain]

4 I’ll not be ashamed of my dear loving Lord,
Ashamed of His people, His cause, or His word;
I’ll be faithful in Jesus, His banner I’ll bear,
The joy of His kingdom forever to share. [Refrain]
